What a Treat!

Yesterday I was lucky enough to go to this lecture.
What a treat.
Such a charismatic enthusiastic man.
The 200-odd ladies-of-a-certain-age (who comprised nearly all the audience)
were enthralled and asked lots of questions.
I just listened and learned.  
Having only just started to learn quilting - which was his main concentration -
I just wallowed in colour
Although it was Easter Monday
The Welsh Quilt Centre in Lampeter was open to visit the exhibition
'Kaffe Fassett comes to Wales!'
If you get the opportunity - do visit - it is on until November and is wonderful
The lovely quilt shop next to the exhibition, Calico Kate, opened specially
so that all of us from the lecture could go and purchase more and more wonderful
cottons for our quilts - as I did, above.
In fact the two ladies sitting in front of me, shot out at the end of the lecture,
before the question and answer session, and I realised they were the
shop owners hurrying to open up before we all descended.
One of the ladies in my quilting group is making this quilt.
I love the block shapes and think I may have a go at the same thing.
After I have finished the other two projects I have on the go!!
Someone said I would get hooked.  I certainly have!
You can find out all about the Kaffe Fassett exhibition here  .
Keep quilting!
