I won't be needing this over the coming weekend!
Back on Mother's Day these wonderful children of mine got me a
a quilting retreat weekend with A Vintage Spool, Verna Mosquera!
Her work is just beautiful and I have collected her patterns nearly ever
since I started quilting... the only problem is
I never have learned to do the "A" word.
I have a big fat fear of it!
I am considering it an applique boot camp disguised as
Sweet Treat Retreat...
it just lures you in doesn't it?
I am imagining Willy Wonka and the Oompa-Loompas ...
lots of fun and eye candy.
Well, we will just see about that!
I did take a lesson before by Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup.
It apparently did not sink in well.
So, I'm giving it another try... because Verna's patterns are wonderful and I want to be able to make them along with my patterns I have collected from Blackbird Designs, Acorn Quilt Co. and various others.
This is one of Verna's patterns, Primavera.
then there is this one, that was offered by Fat Quarter Shop.
And this one, her newest creation, Sugar Kisses!
