Pizza Box Ladies Workshops and Lecture
This past week I attended a workshop and a trunkshow with Cindy from Pizza Box Ladies out of North Carolina.
This was the project from the workshop. Fun, no?! She is a great instructor. Very organized. The kit included all the fabric and the ruler needed to make two blocks. Generally I'm not a kit person but it did make things go much smoother and allowed the entire group to focus on techniques instead of fabrics. Most if not all of the quilters in the room finished both blocks...that in itself is remarkable!
On Saturday Cindy presented a trunk show of quilts made from a variety of specialty templates.
There were several takeaways...(my observations...)
First, each template can make several designs...don't put the template you bought in a drawer after only one quilt!
Second, she had some interesting techniques on bringing the blocks to the border.
oh yes...and there was shopping...guild members did a lot of shopping!
