Flying Geese Quilt Guild - Orange County CA

I have just finishing teaching two full day classes at the Flying Geese Quilt Guild here in sunny California. It does feel good to be out of the snowy cold weather for a while. I was really thrilled that the students were very creative laying out their leaves in many different formats.
Having spent time layering the leaves I went on to teach many stitches using different textural threads, ribbons and yarns. It is always amazes to me how it changes the appearance of all the leaves.
We also added buttons and beads.
Tonight I am doing a trunk show at Flying Geese Quilt Guild thenI will be traveling to Surfside Guild to do a workshop on Wednesday.
I can't wait to see the finished results of these pieces and thanks to all for such a fun time.
Keep stitching
