As expected, the class was fantastic. I've made the fox quilt a few times already (see here and here), but Hazel was new to me, and Elizabeth always has the best tips, even for things I thought I already knew well. She's patient, encouraging, and super helpful, and she's not shy about giving compliments when she really likes something.
That evening, she did a trunk show presentation, which was really enjoyable. She shared a lot about her personal life and sewing journey, which she doesn't really do much of on her blog, so it was nice to "meet" more of the person behind the persona. Her quilts, of course, were beautiful, and she shared all of the quilts from Patchwork City, the quilts in her animal series, and a few more.
After the show, I hurried home to pay the babysitter and get back to work, wanting to finish my blocks. I got all three put together into my mini quilt top (I decided to do a mini for my sewing wall instead of the pillow) on Sunday, and I'm hoping to finish the rest this week. I love these little animals!It was another great encounter for this super fan!
