A Little Quilt Retreat With Deonn

I've been a bit lazy about sewing lately, but today I went to a quilt retreat where
Deonn from Quiltscapes was teaching. We sewed from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m....I'm exhausted!
Deonn had us sewing half hexies and making some little origami looking things.
She's so patient and was even willing to use the ripper to fix a few a lot of my mistakes!


The class was for Deonn's cute sheep quilt that was published in Quiltmaker.
Cute, cute, cute...just like Deonn!


Phone cameras aren't the best, especially mine, but being with this sweet lady was
worth taking a picture about. She was fun and I learned so many things. Thanks, Deonn!


I still need to finish the quilt, but it's close to being done. Love it!

  4. How fun! I am notorious for taking a class and not finishing the project...hope you are able to get your cutie sheep done! Deonn's design looks great for a tactile quilt for a little one! Love your jacket btw :)

  5. What fun....even if it was a long day! I'm new at hexies and I love that little sheep....a nice way to get started on something that isn't overwhelming. It would be cute to just make one and put it on a pillow or hanging. I know I'd never get a whole quilt finished. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it. Baaaaaa!
