WIP and a little Modern inspiration from Jacquie

Busy week so far. I have once again started something without finishing the previous project. Not only that but I took a class this week too. :)

WIP is a little ditty  and the main quilt star is the Friendship Block chosen this month over at  SewCanSheIf you want to participate you still have time for this month so check it out. 

This is a big block! 18" I wanted to practice HST's and thought bigger was better. Then after the ease of practice I decided to make a few more to surround this one. I used a tutorial from Sew Happy Geek HERE 
and came up with this so far. 

 "Bring on Spring!"
Now to make it big enough for our quilt guild charity which is 45 x 55 min so I have some borders or thinking to do. Most exciting news is once again this is from my stash!

Then time for a little class yesterday. Our quilt guild brought in Modern Quilt guru Jacquie Gering. I can easily say that if she is near your home you need to go take a class by her. She is so much fun. She chats, she laughs, she teaches and suggests, jokes and gives and gets inspiration. She also walks up and rips your blocks apart but that is another story!! ha :)

Jacquie with our class coordinators and one of Jacquie's sample flip and sew quilts.

Okay not the best pic...sorry Jacquie!  She is holding one of her sample flip and sew quilts but standing in front of my work!!! I had to share this pick with you all just because of that. Another WIP! 
So much fun, so little time...so much to learn and share. What a great experience. Connect with Jacquie HERE

You've had a great week. I noticed the pile of cut "slices" on your cutting mat. They're always a sign of lots of progress. I love the colour you chose for your quilt, it will definitely brighten someone's day. Thanks for sharing the photos of your class with Jacquie....lucky you.
