Last weekend I attended our Wyoming State Quilt Guild convention that was held in my town. We had a wonderful time, great regional teachers and 2 fabulous National Teachers, J. Michelle Watts and Susan Brubaker Knapp. They each taught a class and had a trunk show.
I took a class from a designer and teacher from Billings MT. This is my finished table topper/wall hanging.
I really like the backing. This fabric has been in my stash for a few years. I seem to pick up fabric with words whenever I can. This one works for the backing here. The white fabric on the front has cherries, white on white. I am considering some George Washington, Cherry Tree , Patriotic reference when I decide to give it a name. I think the floral border has a reproduction feel also.
I have permission to share these photos of some of the other projects completed or partially completed by some of my friends.
This is the project made by my friend Carolyn. It was a class in the technique of using a special ruler.
My friend Maggie, made two tuffets. This brightly colored one and the one below, all sewing themed fabric for use in her studio. Talk about an over-achiever! She was also the co-chair for the entire convention.
This photo shows the back of the applique piece . Isn't it marvelous?
I am linking up with Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and Finished or Not Friday at Busy Hands Quilts.
Until next time
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
