I worked on a couple new projects..... including this one for the upcoming Bakersfield retreat...
It's part of the new Cattails collection, and I am in love with it!!!!
I'm not QUITE done, but will finish it this week.
I also did a ton of teaching this month, at Cotton and Chocolate in Thousand Oaks (CA), the Orange Quilt Bee in Orange (CA), in Palm Desert (CA) at Monica's Quilt and Bead, in Glendora (CA) at the SewnSew, and finally we closed the month with a three day retreat at Sewing Machines Plus here in Escondido, right down the block from work. It was really nice to "teach at home" with a 5 minute commute to the store, and a lovely group of locals.
I missed out on a majority of Road to California, as I was teaching, and it just really didn't work to get there during the work day, I did get to see the quilts that had been entered by a couple of my students as part of the preview night activities, which was really fun. It was great to see 5 Quiltworx quilts hanging at Road, a real tribute to how a single designer has influenced so many people and their art.
That's about all of my January 2018. It was great, and I am super happy with how it fit into the years goals and plans! Do you have Quilty Goals for 2018?
