Empty Spools Seminar

Bailey and Mackie
I was away for almost 3 weeks and one of the reasons for the trip was to take a 5 day workshop at the Empty Spools Seminar at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California.  It is a State Park and located on the Monterey Peninsula.

I took Patt Blair's workshop: Painted Quilt Art .  We learned so much about using inks to paint on fabric.  Patt is an amazing teacher and so much fun!   Check out her blog for pictures of all the students' projects from the class.

This was a wonderful experience, the quilters, classes, location and accommodations were great, and I would certainly consider going back.

Here are some pictures of my work in progress:

This one is ready for quilting and another partially done.

And some pictures of the ocean where we went for walks every morning:

Lots of waves

Surfers loved the waves

The boardwalk
Rock formations

a Canadian visitor

And look what the Easter Bunny brought me

These little guys were having their breakfast
And this is our dining hall where we went for ours
