I met so many lovely people and had time to enjoy London without kids attached - eating dinner out at 10pm was amazing!
As part of the weekend I took a class in EPP, learnt how to use Touch Draw and took a hand quilting class.
I also took a class with the wonderful Lu Summers of Summersville. It was all about portholes, which are really fun to make!
I love the explosion of colour!
I wasn't lucky enough to get into Lu's class on Improv quilts, but I was able to buy her new book:
It has Portholes as well as loads of patchwork techniques to try out. I am planning on using a few of them to turn the blocks into a small quilt.
Lu even signed it for me... I think the 'crazy lady' description is pretty accurate!
I loved my weekend making new friends and taking Lu's class - my first patchwork class in 17 years of quilting!
