As I mentioned last week, our guild hosted two full day workshops with Jacquie Gering. During the second workshop we learned Jacquie's Stitch and Flip technique.
I really enjoyed seeing Jacquie's latest quilts in addition to quilts from her book, especially this one.
|Love this quilt of Jacquie's|
You can read more about the workshop here and see additional photos from the workshop on our Flickr page. We had a full house and our members were working on a wide variety of prints and solid backgrounds.
|Christmas tree? Star?|
I brought red squares and Christmas fabric scraps with a Christmas tree or wreath in mind. Jacquie played around with different layouts, but after awhile it became apparent to me that green fabric for the background would have been a better choice than red.
When I went home I decided to go in a different direction with my Christmasy stitch and flip blocks. I fussy cut this cute Christmas llama from Laurie Wisbrun and went about stitchin and flippin. I think I this will work better.
Wonder how many Stitch and Flip show and tells we will have at our next guild meeting?!!!
|discussing important business over dinner|
The guild board took Jacquie out to dinner at a new to me Italian restaurant that served the most fabulous Limencello cake ever!!! I was good though and didn't take any food pictures for a change. I might need to go back and see if that cake tastes as good as I remember.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy stitching,
