|Ombre wall in the ombre class at Quilt Con|
|my Ombre Flying Geese was used for both classes :)|
|Me in front of the Wall of Ombre. We didn't even put up all the projects up! They cranked them out like rockstars|

The second day was spent teaching the Ombre gradient class. These ladies knocked out learning tons of techniques using my ombre gradient fabric. WE HAD A FUN TIME. we learned how to piece randomly and how to piece purposely with gradients, how to appliqué, how to pleat, and how to make rosettes jut to name a few. Much thanks to both of my classes it was so much fun getting to know you in our time together.
|my favorite quilt please don't ask me who made it because it was a walk by taking picture and I didn't get the maker's name, but it was amazing, the different shades in the circles were made by the color of thread|
Case in point here's me at the BERNINA booth signing books. WHAT? This was a freak accident picture taken at just the right time…I don 't know what people are talking about…wait…
Okay fine. I blame the hispanic in me. So I flail my arms and make a lot of facial expressions. Sue me. I make life interesting. ;) (just kidding I know I'm animated, just as my sunday school kids in primary…half the time they just sit there staring at me with wide eyes and open mouths as I teach because I make so many faces and try to take flight half the time…)
Once I got home, I took a break of a day or so because my voice was all but gone and I was delirious from hardly any sleep and stress of the weeks prior. So I took to folding all yardage of all my fabric collections with Moda, it was relaxing for a minute. I still have just gray left to go. But i've made lots of room on my shelves so that's fantastic news. :)
BUT, I did get one step closer to having our two new patterns for Simply Colorful RED, ORANGE, YELLOW ready for release!

Now back to reality of deadlines to be met, children to usher to activities, and dirty dishes. Life is a wonderful thing, I love my "crazy normal" and I love being home for a little bit. (HELLO SPRING MARKET COMING IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS!) One thing at a time.
We'll talk soon.
