Kaffe and Brandon are in town and I was lucky enough to get into a workshop they ran today at Amitie, the happiest land of them all!
This image above is of the original bordered diamonds quilt from the book Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts. It was our focus for the day.
There were so many lovely people there today:

|Miriam, Me (and my chins) and Cathy|
|Melissa, Cathy and Me|
|Blogless Sue and Judy|

What an amazing day!!
Thank you to EVERYONE who made it possible.
