Pat Wys Workshop
Last week my guild had a workshop and trunk show with Pat Wys, Silver Thimble Quilt Company.
She wrote two book on using Neutrals. Now I'm usually a brights or reproduction fabric fan (I know two polar opposites) but I really liked Pat's quilts. Definitely something I'll try - most likely when I have to make a "guy" quilt!
Pat demonstrated several different techniques during the day while folks sewed on the quilt pattern they selected. So we had lots of different colorways (ya, purple can be a neutral to some folks!)
It was fun to see the different quilts coming together.
The trunk show was wonderful...she and her husband brought lots of quilts!
I loved her Christmas book...ya, she brought lots of patterns and books! And it is never to early to start stitching for the holidays...my Grandmother started on New Years Day!
So I bought some neutrals at the Hancock's going out of business sale and added a couple from the stash that I will use on a quilt soon....
