I'm heading to the Buggy Barn Quilt Show next week where Im meeting up with some friends to enjoy a week of classes, shopping, great food and fun. Those Buggy Barn gals know how to host a quilt show, this will be the second time that I've attended.
I'll be taking a class with Kim Diehl.
I think I own all Kim's books but have yet to make a single project, I don't know why, I pretty much love everything she designs. Well that's about to change.
I'm also going to take a class with Pat Wys.
I've signed up for Road Trip, the cover quilt on her Knockout Neutrals book. Pat's another designer that I have admired and am excited to learn all I can about her take on working with neutrals.
I'm also going to take a wool mat class with Stacy of Buttermilk Basin.
My projects are all cut out and my sewing machine is packed, I'll be back in a week to tell you all about it.
Have tons of FUN!ReplyDelete
Have fun! Can't wait to see how you've Thelmanized the projects!ReplyDelete
Oh, I am jealous! Three of my favorite designers! Have fun.ReplyDelete
Nice....and both classes sound like fun. Who wouldn't want to meet those gals. I too love everything Kim Diehl and you will have to let us know about her class. So, have fun and enjoy your trip.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a blast. I'm very jealous!ReplyDelete
Oh, have fun!! I own 3 of Kim's books and I have yet to make a single one either. Wonder why. I just love looking at them :). Can't wait to see what you make.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to seeing your projects.ReplyDelete
How fun - I wish I was packed in your suitcase! I would love to take classes with all 3 of them. Can't wait to see what all you make!ReplyDelete
I love Kim Diehl's patterns and have made several. I am looking forward to hearing all about it. I hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete
Sounds totally awesome! Have a great time. :DReplyDelete
Thanks for the reminder it is Buggy Barn Quilt Show time again. I'll head up and check it out. One of these years I would love to take a class from Kim too. I hand appliqued her giant dahlia basket from the cover of her Simple Traditions book, but still need to get back to it and add the rest of the borders. I love her designs too.ReplyDelete
OH WOW!! Three of my all time favourite designers!! LUCKY YOU!! Have fun and take LOTS of pics!! I'll be looking over your shoulder!ReplyDelete
I made one of Kim's quilts that was displayed at a quilt shop I worked at in Shorewood, IL. The one with the 5" Churn Dash blocks. Loved her directions and LOVE this quilt! Laura V.ReplyDelete
Wow! How lucky are you? I have every book of Kim's also but have never made anything....I keep thinking I could never live up to all that glorious scrappiness!! Enjoy......I can't wait to see what you make...3 awesome teachers!ReplyDelete
It sounds like there are a lot of us that own all of Kim's books, but have yet to make a project from them. I was able to take a class from Kim last year, and finally got a table runner done and while I was on a roll, made Pie in the Sky--a super fun scrappy quilt. You will have fun in class--she's a great lady and awesome teacher!ReplyDelete
Green with envy over here! Have a great time and tell us all about it!ReplyDelete
Have a great time! I know you will all have a great time. I can't wait to see your projects.ReplyDelete
Another fun trip! Have a wonderful time.ReplyDelete
Exciting!! Have fun.ReplyDelete
A friend and I are in Kim's Monday class at the Buggy Barn. Hopefully, I will see you there. I know the class will be a lot of fun!ReplyDelete
How fun! I'll be following you on Instagram :) would love to see a pic of you with your partners in crime, I think one is Nicole :). So jelly!ReplyDelete
Oh that sounds like such fun! Have a great and safe trip!! Anne D.ReplyDelete
