    My wife and I went to a paper piecing workshop today that our guild sponsored with nationally known quilting artist Deb Karasik ( http://www.quiltmavens.com/ ). It was great and LOTS of fun! I learned to paper piece and got 3 blocks done! :D We got to bring our own fabrics to all do the same pattern, which is one she developed named "Ringo Star". I choose to do mine in Civil War reproduction fabrics. My wife is doing hers in bright tie-dyes on a black background.

    Deb is doing a trunk show at our monthly guild meeting tomorrow night as well. Looking forward to it!
