At The Road To California Quilt Show this year, I saw Cathy Van Bruggen in her booth demonstrating her applique technique. I bought every product she sold plus her DVD. I was in love with her patterns especially the little bugs she puts in them. Imagine my surprise when. I learned that day that she teaches and lives only 20 minutes away from me!!! I signed mysel and three buddies up faster than they could think about it and WAITED for March 8th to come.
Cathy was such a wonderful hostess, we ate breakfast and lunch (included in the class cost). Her house is just beautiful, the grounds large and her sewing studio immense!
We had a morning of stems and leaves--relaxing and productive,
.a grand lunch, and the we learned a more challenging technique when we attempted to make a hummingbird(many parts----need much practice there!!).
This one is on Cathy's Van Bruggen's quilt!
This is the one I made:
