I went to Whiting Mills in Winsted, CT yesterday. Victoria was teaching her 15 Minute class at Jackie Kunkel's studio, Canton Village Quilt Works! It was a great day. I made my first Lemoyne Star and got to buy Victoria's Auriful thread which I am looking forward to using!
Victoria's quilts are stellar and get this, they are even better in person. It's true. We all know how photos don't catch the nuances. If you get a chance to go to a class with V - go!!!
When she showed us techniques, little light bulbs went off in my head. Little nuggets of gold. My mojo for my mini squares came back. I realized a critical error on my part. I was lining up outside edges of fabric and sewing my 1/4" seams there. There's no reason to do that except that I probably didn't want to squander any precious fabric (because when you're done, your cuttings from these squares are too small for anything). When I got home and played for 15 minutes last night - I got happy and giddy and completely addicted to the mini's - as advertised...
Oh how I envy you, I would love to take a class with Victoria, she is such a sweet person. Lucky you! Glad you found your giddyness!
you lucky ducky-that would be a dream come true-a class with V!!!
i like the start of this-cannot wait to see more!
We had such fun!!!! SO nice to meet you in person! You and your fabulous Blue eyes! ;-)
