A long Hiatus

I know its been ages since I have written on my blog. most will not check in to see that I have added a post. (except Rosalie)
Carol Christian and I have just spent 4 wonderful days in Townsend TN. We came to learn hand piecing and boy did we learn. It was such a pleasure to meet Cindy Blackberg, to learn her hand piecing techniques and for those that know me, buy almost all of her stamps and patterns.
We started the learning with a trip to Pappy's Quilt shop, wow what a neat place. She carries several of Cindy's stamps so to get a little learning edge, I bought a hexagon stamp and some scraps of fabric, and off we went to the hotel. Carol and I made 8 blocks that evening and into the next morning. Well the next afternoon, Cindy started her instruction with a kit that included a hexagon block to put together. well Carol and I could have taught the class, LOL. I told Carol that I am not sure I need a sewing room anymore, LOL. There was not time during the class that I felt rushed or behind. It was very put together and Cindy is a fun teacher. I am already looking forward to the next year. And for sure I will be going!
OK, enough for now I am still on the road to home, Today we are stopping at the Quilt Box in Dry Ridge Kentucky, then heading for home. I need to get home and start the laundry, unpack and get my project out and look at it.

  1. I really would love to learn how to hand piece. When I asked about it at a local shop that talked me into learning applique instead. Although, I am loving the technique I learned, I still want to learn hand piecing.
