I finished this UFO today....about 10 years after I started it! I took a class about 10 years at the Utah Quilt Fest, held that year in Park City.....it was so long ago, I THINK it was 10 years ago. I took a class to learn needle turn applique and this is the result. I also took a class on 3-D flowers, which I added to a appliqued basket block that now hangs in my livingroom. The third class was a technique class to learn different ways to do curved piecing and applique. The teacher provided a bird pattern to practise your favorite curved technique. I enjoyed the class, but never did do a bird wallhanging or quilt.
Park City Fest was the only time I stayed in a hotel to attend the annual Utah Quilt Fest. Usually I just drive back and forth (or just not attend). This year, the Fest is being held in Ogden Utah at the Eccles Center, which is about a 20 minute drive from me. I will definitely be there for the quilt til' you wilt Friday night/all night sew-in, plus I usually help with the donated orphan block class....last year I won one of the orphan block quilts (donated it to QOV). I am also excited that Jane Sassaman(I'm sure that is not spelled correctly!) is coming to teach...I love her art quilts with all the circles and embellishments!
On to the next UFO......and I have SO many to choose from!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
