I came right home and worked on making my blocks from the class into a wallhanging for my sewing room .(I totally stole your sewing room wallhanging idea Anja!) I quilted it with vertical squiggly lines using a pink variegated Sulky 30# thread top and bottom and a 90/14 topstitch needle. I love how it turned out so much.
My QuiltySister from Qatar is home for a little visit and tagged along to the class with me and helped me with lugging all my gear and even cutting and pressing. It was so great to spend some quality quilty time with my sis...I miss her a lot. She enjoyed the class too. Even though she is a strict to- the- pattern lover, she really liked the letter free piecing and tells me she is going to give it a try when she gets back to her sewing room in Doha. Thanks Valerie, for a fun, learning day. You rock!

Along with the house block, the letters and the trees, we also made a freepieced churn dash block. I am going to make a cushion with it. I used the breast cancer fabric in the centre on this one.
Earlier today, I heard from Stephanie, the winner of my anniversary giveaway fabric postcard. The postcard arrived safe and sound and she really enjoyed it. I can show it to you now. It is similar to the sample that I used for teaching my first postcard workshop. BTW. I am teaching another fabric postcard class on Sunday if you are interested. Get in touch with me for more info.
