Empty Spools, Here I Come

On Sunday I will be leaving for Empty Spools in California. Last year I took a wonderful class called Fabric Collage with Rosemary Eichorn. My goal was to make a vest from the collage and yesterday I finished the vest. It is definitely something that is out of my comfort zone. I'm someone who is very concerned with finishing techniques and have never done anything with raw edges and free motion quilting. Throughout this journey I learned many new techniques that I hope to incorporate into future projects. Another plus of this class was that I learned to not be so up tight about finishes and enjoy the work I'm doing rather than being nervous about the outcome. I will proudly wear my vest for Show and Tell at Empty Spools.
The class that I'm taking this time is hand applique and embroidery. Even though I do lots of both techniques, I want to learn how to use a map in order to place my applique pieces in the correct places and in the right order.
