festival of quilts 2012

Just recovering with a G+T from 2 days at FOQ.
Enjoyed 2 classes, 'Bringing it all together' with Linda Miksch
This was a method to join individually quilted blocks without cover strips , also
 'Falling in love with  curves' with Virginia Walton ( below ) with no pin curved piecing...really sweated over this as my bobbin was not behaving..naughty bobbin!. Both teachers from USA, both very patient and supportive.
Gosh felt really exhausted after class, such a lot of concentration.

Some people even looked at my quilt

Some  stash resuscitation occurred

Bought this  enamel necklace by Janna Hodgson , it goes with everything ;  and it reverses to all black enamel for your monochrome days
Janna was wearing the largest version ( mine  is the smallest one ) which looked tres chic on her. I have a feeling I may be browsing her work again soon

colour, colour, colour......we love it!

Anyone else go to FOQ? Did you enjoy, do tell
