More Pix from Pati, and from Lynn!

It seems a great time was truly had by all at the Tea Party in Livermore this weekend!  We’ve got a few more pix to share — check them out below, then head over to Lynn Wilder’s Sewn Wild Oaks blog post for even more highlights of the day!

Here’s Pati (center) with Lisa and Lora of The Material Girlfriends.  (You probably recognize them as the designers of our “Bird Walk” BOM.)

Thanks to everyone who attended this fun and successful event!  We hope you’ve all been inspired to create gorgeous, easy English paper pieced designs.

An Elegant Affair…and Quilting!

Next on Pati’s agenda: an appearance at In Between Stitches, a most beautiful quilt shop in Livermore, CA. She was invited to be one of the  featured presenters at a very elegant event hosted by the shop, but before the Saturday afternoon soiree, she visited the shop itself:

The Tea Party itself took place at the Purple Orchid Resort and Spa, a lovely and relaxing setting where the attendees enjoyed formal tea, along with tips and techniques on English paper piecing and the creative use of Strip-It™ fabrics.  Pati, alon with Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek (shown below), and Lynn Wilder of Sew’n Wild Oaks, delighted the women with a variety of looks to enhance their quilting projects:

Past Endearments, as Interpreted by Lynn Wilder

We always love to see what Lynn Wilder’s been up to, and this particular blog posts shows off her interpretation of Judie Rothermel’s PAST ENDEARMENTS collection. Judie’s mix of cool pinks and blues with warm neutrals create a beautiful trans-seasonal look.  Once you’ve taken it all from this in-progress photo, be sure to read the full post at her Sew’n Wild Oaks blog, because there Lynn explains her Patchwork Math method for creating the blocks.  Thanks, Lynn!

Emilie Elizabeth, the Quilt

Lynn Wilder of the Sew’n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog shared her recent project with us, a gorgeous quilt entitled Emilie Elizabeth, named after her grandmother.  Lynn used a mix of JUDIE’S ALBUM QUILT prints and PAULA BARNES COMPANIONS, and documented her work in a revealing photo album.  It’s exciting to see how the project comes together!  Lynn tells us that the pattern for Emilie Elizabeth will be available soon.

How many of you also document your quilts-in-progress?  Do you do it for technical, creative or historical purposes, or all three?
