My Blue Heaven

Bonnie taught her My Blue Heaven workshop for the Oconomowoc Quilt Guild/ Patched Lives Quilt Guild today! Bonnie is a real sweetie! I felt like I have known her forever. :) Sorry Bonnie, I snapped the picture mid-sentence as you were explaining something! After her tutorials on *how to use* the Easy Angle and its Companion Angle, were we let loose to sew our *parts* for the star and puss blocks. My half square triangles were indeed half square and my flying geese were the closest ever I have made them to what they are actual suppose to be! Must be the rulers! There is also very little waste, assuming that you cut the first cut correctly, that is!
Bonnie's goal for the sewers was to complete 5 star blocks and 4 puss blocks. Here are mine on the table. My table partner had to leave early so I was able to spread out at the end of the workshop. I was ironing my last block at 3:30 pm when the whistle blew signalling the end of the day. These are the only two pictures I took as I was busy sewing and socializing with the other girls. A very fun day with lots of learning .

Lucky you! We all loved her lecture last night in Spring Green. I would have loved to take a class with her. She had so many new ideas.

Now when you come to MI again you will have to show me how to use those rulers!! I am so jealous that you are having so much fun.
