Violet Craft Class with the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild


For several months now I’ve been looking forward to Ventura Modern Quilt Guild’s class with Violet Craft. The class was a blast and it made the day even better being around so many great people. Violet gave everyone individual instruction related to the pattern that they were working on. She certainly shone brightly as a teacher and I’m sure that the rest of her students would agree. It’s always fun to learn a new technique. I’ve been paper piecing for close to 20 years and I’ve learned something new. Her trunk show is Monday October 8, and the house will be packed at the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild meeting.

Pineapple Pincushion

Ventura Modern Quilt Guild and Valley Modern Quilt Guild hold monthly challenges for the guild members that are a fun way to get everyone involved. I enjoy seeing and hearing about other peoples creative process, and I love seeing their finished product. Coming up is a pincushion challenge/swap and I usually wait til the last minute but this time I’m ready way ahead of time. You can never have too many pincushions. I will post the paper-pieced temple under the tutorials section for anyone interested.
