Stringing along with a visitor!

We had a visitor to Colorado!!  And I am going to hold off telling you *my truth*  Ha ha ha - until he has a chance to get home..... but!!!

KEVIN THE QUILTER came and spoke at our Guild, and then did a workshop for us!

It was a lot of fun - and a lot of energy, and a LOT of inspiration.... so much so....

I spent yesterday afternoon sorting some of my fabrics.... ( just some - I didn't want to get too excited!)

This is my Workshops project in process.... It's Kevin's String Stars Workshop

And just cuz you want to see all the smiling faces and the fun we had.....

Of course
That quilter has no off button
So we had to do some stitching as well
and we made a few more Flags for Sue

It is really fun to get to a workshop
Even if you think you know how to make that specific project - GO!!
you will learn something, and have fun, and enjoy hanging out with fellow quilters

AND if you guild is looking for a GREAT program!
Kevin the Quilter really does Deliver!!!
We never laughed so hard, and the whole crowd was involved!!

How fun!! Was the star appliqued onto the backing? Looks like a great way to use all those strings!

Sounds and looks like it was a ton of fun- and quilt productive, too!

So true - Kevin is so high-energy and so much fun to be with. Looks like a great workshop!

Kevin spoke at my little quilt guild, years ago (one of his first lectures). I'm trying to get my large quilt guild to get him on the program for next year (they are supposed to be contacting him). What a fun, quilty weekend we'll have when they schedule him.

That sounds like it was lots of fun! I love that string star, too.

Hi Alycia, it sounds like you had a great time. It's true that a workshop is so much more than just learning a technique. Getting together with other quilters and learning from each other is always fun. I really like that string star. What a great idea. Thanks so much for sharing this with us and for linking up to TGIFF!

I always learn something new at a worksop. This one sounds like a lot of fun and the result is spectacular.
