The Texas Tumbleweeds workshop with Bonnie Hunter in San Antonio last Friday definitely lived up to all my hopes for a fun day. There were 24 of us in class, and even though I only knew the two other people who filled last minutes openings from my local club, I felt welcomed and included. Bonnie is one of those teachers who lavishes attention on all her students, making the day that much more enjoyable.
I was travelling solo thus allowing me lots of room in my hotel room to sew at night. Here is my set up from the night before the workshop when I was piecing a different project.
Here are two complete blocks from the project.
I also managed to stitch up bits and pieces of several additional units.
Here is a shot of all the blocks made by students that day.
What trip would be complete without a stop (or two) at quilt shops along the way.
…and a couple more souvenirs from the workshop itself.
It was an extravagant mini vacation and I had a great time.
