Fun Two Days

I’m very tired tonight, but in a good way.  A quilting friend graciously opened up her lovely home for an overnight workshop on applique techniques.  This was the second time I was able to attend a workshop by this teacher and it was a good refresher to the first session.  This is the project we worked on.  I have only begun a little of the hand stitching portion.  Most of our time was spent in preparing the design pieces using heat resistant templates, lots of sizing and lots or pressing.

The workshop had 13 participants and about 8 of us stayed overnight.  As always happens when quilters get together for retreats, we ate well (probably a little too well), stayed up really late, shared life stories and generally enjoyed each other.
