My Quilting Soul is Full

The last 4 days my quilting soul was filled to the brim.  Stitching with Sue Spargo, being with friends and meeting new quilters was very satisfying.  I also met my June 1st deadline with  Huckleberry Stitches 101Fabulous Small Quilts Challenge! 

She gave us an opportunity to make 2 little quilts this month. But, I could only accomplish one...and, I love it and will be placing it on my coffee table the month of July!  
Using my stash which always makes me happy! back to the fun with Sue Spargo!  I apologize that Smilebox is on the fritz...which means I can't share all the photos because it would make the blog a mile long, lol.  The class was to help us create a textured background and then build the peacock motif on top all the while learning some creative stitches.

I loved the met all my expectations...except...I didn't want a Peacock :)  Sue had no problem with a few of us venturing out into our own designs.  A great teacher is one who brings her knowledge, shares it...and then lets you run with it!  Although my piece is no where near finished...I have a whole lot of stitching before I add some colorful elements...I am totally in love with it!

...and my friend Lori's is absolutely adorable!

There were a handful of flower vases and wide variety of Peacock...
none looked the same!

I thought I would share some photos of Sue's stitching.  The photo below are examples of stitching with ribbon.

...the next 4 photos are close ups of a wall hanging that I fell in love with...the circles are about 2 inches across.

this hexie is only about an inch and a half!!!

When I saw this project I decided when I finish my circles I am going to put a border of leaves :)

If you ever get a chance to take a class with Sue Spargo you won't be disappointed!  In fact if I get a chance I am going to take another one :)
