Finished Quilting Projects

Friday 10 June 2016

Monica Solorio-Snow, Penny Layman and Violet Craft

First day of sewing at Glamp Stitchalot! So I posted a bit yesterday about the arrival day at Glamp Stitchalot. You can read about that day here.

When I arrived at my spot in the "Great" room, I got to see first hand the sewing machine that would be "mine" for the weekend.

Isn't she a beauty?! There were also some Janome "homies" around if anyone who rented a machine ran into trouble. I have to say, this machine did work well. There were definitely some features that I enjoyed on this machine. I didn't get to try out any Free Motion features since I wanted to sew ;)

Setting up for Workshop #1 with Monica @ Happy Zombie

This was definitely one of my favourite rows. I love the colours that I picked out and just the flow of the row was spectacular! I'm hoping to finish this row soon. I really don't want to add these rows to the WIP pile....

 That is Monica's signature on my row. I didn't accomplish much sewing while I was there. I was more interested in learning from all of the instructors :)

My next workshop was with Penny Layman. I really love her paper piecing row. Here's one of the mountains that I was able to finish.

And then Violet Craft's row.

My first shot at curves! Love her technique that she taught. Made me look at curved piecing in a whole new light!

And check out a door prize that I won :)

Yes. It is what you think it is. The Aurifil Thread Color Card!

I absolutely love this! This is something that I would have never bought for myself but I am over the moon to have it :)

I also purchased a few more fabrics at the Pop Up Shop...

A few Fat Eights and a mini charm pack of Flow....and yes I bought one the day before at the store. I decided I wanted to have two :)

I'll be working on another post for the final three workshops. Hope you come back to visit to see the last post of my trip!


  1. Oh, Julia, how very delightful! Love that each instructor signed a block! Looking forward to hearing more about it! XO

  2. Wow! What fun you had and I bet you learned a ton. I have the Aurifil colour card too and it has come in handy many times.
