I picked some fabrics out, packed my supplies and off I went Saturday morning for the first day of the workshop focusing on Anna's Folk Flower block and my chance to really have a go at some reverse applique.
A fantastic day was had by all of us. We had plenty of her quilts on show for inspiration. The best thing with this project was how many different ways we could make the block, by machine, by hand or a bit of both.

Day 2 saw us having a stitching session with Anna. So much inspiration what do you try. Embroidery, hand quilting, fabric collage and more.
In the end I had a go at some embriodery stitches before going back to my Folk Flower blocks which I managed to finish 3 blocks. In theory only 29 blocks to go in my layout. I don't think mine will be as big as Anna. It was a great two day workshop and if you ever get the chance to do one of her workshop do it you won't be disappointed. I know if I get the chance again I would jump at it.
Until Next Time
