here). I LOVE her quilting style, her quilts are full of color, very whimsical and just plain fun! I can get lost in them. I took her Every day angels class about 10 years ago and she was sooooo nice. I was so star struck, I felt like a 12 year old girl meeting her favorite Spice Girl (I know, dorky). That Everyday Angels quilt is my challenge. I have a border pieces sewn and that's about it. You can read more about it here.
Any who, I really wanted to take one of her 2 day classes but they were full, so I got the last Hoochy Mama spot and that suits me just fine. I went to Joanns to pick out fabric for these wonky blocks. It was interesting. I purposely tried to be very carefree in picking out fabric. The class list suggests different patterns, colors, geometrics etc. Every time I stood back to look at my stash, I realized that even though I had many colors, the value was very similar. In other words, I tend to pick mostly mediums for the most part. It was really hard to get a true light or a true dark. So here's what I ended up with. I will also pull out some unique fabrics from my home stash to take too. I can't wait to see how the HOOCHY MAMA blocks turn out.
Road to California is a HUGE show. If you haven't been before, I highly recomend it. Since my class is on Wednesday and the show doesn't open to the public until Thursday, I figure the prudent thing to do is to stay in a motel on Wednesday and stay over for the opening of the show on Thursday. Brilliant!
