Took an all day class at the International Quilt Show in Rosemont, IL on Friday 4-17-09 with Maggie Weiss “Sheer Bliss” and it was great fun. Attended the Bernina Fashion Show Luncheon – fantastic – pricesless fun……back to class.
Learned to fuse silks and sheers to make a wall hanging. 1st picture is Maggie Weiss and one of her works. 2nd picture are the fruit of our labor. Mine is the first one in the top row.
After the class, I cruised the quilt show a little, and cruised the vendors a lot! giggle.
Bought 2 doll patterns from Magic Threads (Julie McCullough), African Queen a stump doll and Razzle Dazzle a doll jointed with macrame beads. Purchased 2 skeins of recycled sari silk spun into yarn, and from Joy’s Fabrics & Quilts I got a tie dyed t-shirt and a bundle of 12 hand dyed fat quarters in joyous rainbow colors. It was fun, and I enjoyed the whole day.
