    Here are two of the projects I made at this event.

    The table runner is made of asian fabrics and still needs to be sandwiched, quilted, and bound.

    The pillow is flanged and has a dimensional flower applique.

    There were 75 of us at this event and we had so much fun. If you ever have an opportunity to attend one of her events, I hope you will. ♥

    Beautiful!! Love the bright colours, your table runner would also make a lovely wall hanging.

    I just can't make up my mind which I like better. They are both wonderful. I am a little bit Victorian so I guess maybe the table runner but then the colors on the other are so sharp and your quilting is wonderful.

    I love your pieces. I took a class with Eleanor a number of years ago and had the best time of my quilting career. She is so funny.

    Beautiful projects. She seems like such a fun lady, would enjoy just meeting her. Think you could learn so much from her and have fun all at the same time. Glad you enjoyed it.

    That is the beauty of Eleanor's events...you do not have to be experienced to be successful. Just like her books, she helps you each step of the way. Quite a few of the attendees have never been in front of an embroidery machine, and they had no trouble following along. Some of them decided right then and there that they needed an embroidery machine of their own :lol:

    I have attended an Anita Goodesign embroidery event and found the same thing...no experience required. All you need is a desire to have fun...and fun they are!

    They had kits already made up for us to choose from. The runner came in three color combos...purple/lavender, black/gold (I wish I got one of those) and the red/green that I had.

    The pillow was kitted with the fabrics that you see. They aren't my colors but I love that little pillow anyway. They precut the curvy frame fabric with a ruler called "The Wave".

    I thought, what a great idea...cut wavy strips and then stitch down the edges with a decorative stitch. So easy and it looks great. I'm going to do this again but I think I will use really special fabric, like silk dupioni. I have some beautiful "victorian like" embroidery designs for the center.

    These events are so much fun for several reasons...you learn new techniques, see new creative ideas, and meet the nicest people (fellow sewers) in the world.

    By the way, Eleanor Burns is such a lovely, generous, kind hearted woman. She is so down to earth, you feel like you've always known her. She really is a very special person.
