Guild workshop

Yesterday I had the opportunity to take a class from Bobbi Finley.  She spoke at our guild and presented a workshop on Tile Quilts.  She shared a lot of history regarding the technique and photos of quilts from the late 1800's and early 1900's.  She then showed her modern versions. 
She teaches needle turn applique.  I did mine on the machine since hand applique and I do not get along.  I finished my first block.  Now to decide . . . . make a pillow and call it done?  or make additional blocks and make a quilt?  More decisions!

The black and white fabrics are appliqued
to the red background fabric.
After guild today I went shopping at Macy's.  SHOES!!!   (mainly short boots)  Of course this was after I purchased fabric from the guild ways and means committee.  I have got to do something with all the strip sets on my shelf.  They're multiplying like rabbits.

Thanks for looking.

  1. No pictures of the shoes? ha ha. Interesting block. If it was easy to do, I'd make more. It would make an interesting quilt.
