Phillipa Naylor at Superior Threads in Utah!

What a week last week.  A friend and I signed up for four techniques classes at Superior Threads in St. George, Utah with Phillipa Naylor.  If you ever have a chance to take a class by her, I highly recommend it.  Not only is she a good teacher, she's very funny and fun.  You learn so much and she's so generous with her knowledge.

We learned precision piecing, curved piecing, machine applique (all her tips and helps) and finishing techniques.   Even though it was technique classes, I was able to finish my precision piecing and mitered border piece with the spare time to use on the finishing technique classes (piping and binding two of those finishing technique's she taught).

Here's the curved class piece.  Mine is the bell pepper one and Janice's is the other.

We stayed in St. George two extra days to visit Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon.  So amazing.

Finally a few finishes

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted.  I have been sewing.  Here's what I've done since the last time I posted.

First I finished the half-square triangle quilt I started on my Cambria retreat last month.

I think this also uses all Laundry Basket fabrics.  It was a kit.

Then my little sister asked me to make her a new 4th of July table topper.  The one I made her years ago was 12" square and it looked so sad on her big table so she asked me to make her a bigger one.

I also worked on some our guild's boutique items.

All those from panels.

I also signed up for Fig Tree Quilts Little Box of Fig quarterly treats.  This was the quilt from the very first box.  There was also a pattern for a towel but I haven't done that one yet.

I also took some cute pictures of my puppies.  Our Jack Russel Guy is very scared of fireworks and for the week before the 4th, people were popping them off every night.  He must be held when he's scared.

And this…
