Workshop Wonders

I've been pretty quiet on the blog lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy making all manner of shawls, quilts, and wall-hangings.  I took a couple of quilt guild workshops, one from Sue Rasmussen on curved flying geese.  She's a great teacher, I love the sample I made, and I hope to make more of these.

I've made a few curved flying geese before using directions in the book Flying Colors by Gail Garber.  Slightly different techniques, and I love the book, but there's nothing like a live teacher, in person, who can give you great tips for saving time, accuracy in piecing, and so much more.

I also took a workshop from Irelle Beattie, using her Not So Twin Strips pattern.  She's taking a break from her Etsy shop at the moment, but at some point, you may be able to buy the pattern there at JibberishDesigns.  Here's the layout as I was playing with it a couple of weeks ago.  

Changes have been made, but I'm almost done sewing the top together.  Another super fun technique!
