Whimsical Animals Workshop

Well, I stepped out of my little box and decided to join the local Smoky Mountain Quilters Guild. I wouldn’t really consider myself a quilter, but I love to experiment with different fabrics & fibers. And what a wonderful opportunity to learn some new skills from another group of talented women!

They have lots of workshops throughout the year…my first of which was today. It was taught by a very talented friend of mine, Sheila Rauen, who makes the most gorgeous, whimsical quilts. As soon as I heard about the class, I jumped at the chance to learn from her and find out how she works through a project.

Here is my little quilt so far…

All my pieces are sewn down and I’m ready to begin free motion quilting!
