Retreat Demos done...


We had 2 demos done at the retreat. Both done by Lm. First she demoed basket making. Fun stuff! I've had the cording to make myself a basket... for over a year now, and still haven't made one!!!
You know how that goes?! lol!

Then later in the weekend Lm demoed how to use the Fusible Quilters Grid, which can be bought off the bolt, so of course a bunch of us had to buy some from the vendor tables! 8-)
I plan to give a Water Color Quilt method a try with it!

This is the piece that Lm used some of that quilters grid. She finished up the piece by the end of the weekend...
Better a blurry photo than no photo, I hope!? This was a lovely challenge project that Lm will be donating to the Choice Auction part of the Quilt Show here on April 9th weekend (info in a future post)
Mystery Projects from the retreat to come tomorrow! 8-)
Happy stitchings!

LOL Myra, I have the stuff to make a bowl and haven't yet! ;-) Maybe we should set a 'play date'. I love the little wall hanging! Very cute!

The project is very neat. I'm glad you included the picture even though it was blury.

Those basket are cute, I have made rag basket by crocheting them. I have never seen the grid to use sound very interesting. HAPPY STITCHING!

Lots of fun project! Keep us posted if you make a basket! :)

I want to make a flower quilt too!

Happy sewing!
