A snapshot of the weekend workshop

Marg Sampson George visited Hettie's Patch this weekend, and what a hive of activity it has been. The ladies worked on the projects that inspired them the most, and so they were varied, with different applications, but all beautiful. Hexagons, 'margagons', six pointed stars, 'margstars',  bags, quilts, spots, stripes, chit, and chat, it was all happening in the classroom. Even if I've seen a quilt of Marg's before, I seem to always find something new to exclaim over. I love her work, her choice of fabric, her sense of whimsy, and her creative eye and I think it is because of these things, that people love to attend her classes.

I love the leggy flamingoes and contrast in spots. This is one of Marg's quilts.

Lisa's bird has beautiful movement in her wings, just from the placement of the shape on the pattern. She is making a bag too.
