It's A Piece O' Cake!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry, I've been a little late on my postings and responding to comments. On my list of to do's is to respond to comments tomorrow...yeah!!


However, in the meantime I wanted to share with you some pictures that I took today. I took a class with Becky Goldsmith from Piece O' Cake Designs!! She was here visiting our guild and I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I love their work and have taken a class with Linda and Becky at Quilt Market in the fall and loved them!

Today we worked on a quilt called Lorna's Vine from their Amish Inspired Quilts Book. It is the cover quilt and is gorgeous.



I chose slightly brighter fabrics, well a lot brighter...fuschia as my background, lime greens, hot yellow, purples, and oranges! FUN! Here is a look at my fabrics.


Here is Becky teaching.



My friend Pam hard at work.



Becky's quilts from their book Covered With Love.




And what I accomplished in class.


What I truly set out to do was to improve my appliqué stitch and that I did...wooohooo!

It was fun taking her class and hope to sometime do another with her or Linda. If they are ever in your area sign up fast.

I also have been very busy with customer quilts. I just loaded more pictures here and will be posting over the next few days. So be sure to check here frequently to see the ever changing display of wonderful quilts.

Happy Quilting,

Jackie
