Flower Power, summer not over yet

 I had the joy of following Karen to one of her Workshops at the London Quilters Guild last week. The whole trip was fabulous! Here is Karen and the President of the guild together. What a great picture their smiles say it all on what a great time we had.

Karen was above and beyond the best instructor lots of samples ready for her students lots of quilts she shared for her trunk show the evening before and the workshop was the best I learned so much. I forgot what it was like to take a workshop, there are always things you can learn.
Take time and go to a workshop no matter how progressed you are in quilting there is something you can always learn.
 Karen and one of the quilters in the workshop auditioning fussy cutting with one of the templates Karen had prepped for each participant. (15)
 The yellow one is the fabric Karen got ready for each kit for us to use. INCREDIBLE. so we were able to go through each step did I say I learned so much!

The pinky one I did in the workshop of all things I forgot my fabric so then had to buy some. (any excuse will do) Lucky there was a vendor there. Karen had other patterns that you can find on her Etsy store just click on her name and it will take you to her blog.

Then I come home and prep 100 more hexies and have some flowers to show for it, petals falling around my Buddy, as you can see not to happy with the sleep interruption!

Just a little update I now have 6 flowers made! and I am loving the process, as you can see my model had some attitude when I tried to show him my petals

I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network.


  1. Lucky you to attend one of Karen's workshops. Your model might not have appreciated the little petal show, but I did! Aren't hexies fun?

  2. Thanks for the shout out Deb! It was a really fun day and I really enjoyed sharing what I do and how I do it. It looks like you are now well and truly addicted, just like me!

  3. Sounds like a lot of fun ... and your hexies are really great.

  4. It was a fabulous workshop! I didn’t want it to end.

  5. Lovely flowers, though your audience did not look appreciative. Love the red one!
