Wendy's Longarm Quilting, Thunder Bay, Ontario

Traditional and Curvy Workshop

I spent the day in my studio yesterday taking a work shop put on by our Thunder Bay Quilt Guild by Daisy Aschehoug of https://warmfolk.com/

I have attended Guild meetings on Zoom and often use the IPad to visit with another quilter while we both work in our own studios.

This was my first workshop on Zoom. It was very very convenient and a lot easier to work from home and I was probably more productive. I did miss the classroom setting and being able to see what everyone was doing and for the instructor to be able to see as well. It was fun learning about Daisy …and a bit about their life in Norway.

We toured northern Finland Sweden and Norway several years ago and I have always wanted to go back with more time to see more.

The class involved 1/4 curve piecing. I did not have a glue stick in order to try her technique so used pins which worked well as I have sewn curves before. I plan to add a glue stick to my next purchase and give it a try. I used the templates purchased from Daisy which amazingly seemed to arrive overnight!

My love of flying geese prevailed and I chose Dutchman’s Puzzle for my traditional block. Using my bin of solids made this block a lot of fun to put together.

The block has a lot of movement. I haven’t decided what will become of it yet so it will wait … I love the idea of a parts department of units and blocks for future projects.
