Three weeks ago my local modern quilt guild hosted its second annual weekend retreat “Quilting By the Kaw” in Lawrence, Kansas. Spring Hill Suites overlooks the Kansas (or Kaw) River, and although it’s not a spectacular view, it is restful and calming.
Sewing for two days straight was heavenly! My only breaks were a field trip to Sarah’s Fabrics and watching Wichita State lose to Louisville in basketball on Saturday.
…..ended up like this:
Last weekend I took a paper piecing workshop through the Guild with Julie. I’ve done some PP before, mostly blocks here and there. But Julie has some mad skills and I was able to learn a lot in the measly two hours we had.
This cute little tree was our warm-up exercise.
Julie designed this pattern that she calls Geese Crossing. Now I just have three more to do. Not sure if this will be a pillow, wall hanging or something else.
We had quite a variety of trees and geese at the end. What a fun way to spend a Saturday morning!
