I had been waiting for months in great anticipation for the day to arrive.
Petra Prins and Judith Ebbelaar coming to Virginia for a special visit.
Their plan was to come to America on a 2 week vacation to catch up with friends and visit a few interesting places along the way. How very fortunate I was to be along the first stop on their Journey.
Petra agreed to provide 2 workshops while here in the States ... one here in Northern Virginia and another one later in the week at Mary's Quilt Shop in PA. The pictures I'm sharing today are from the workshop here in VA.
It was a very special Dutch Workshop with Petra Prins. The day was wonderful, a sold out venue of 30 students gathered in a large room to see all the gorgeous quilts and fabric designed by Petra Prins . Here we begin setting up for the day.
The technique that Petra & Judith demonstrated for us was hand piecing curved shapes. We worked on the center block of Petra's quilt pattern/design titled "Sisters". A gorgeous floral center with lots of curved shapes to practice our stitches.
Each student received a beautiful tote bag as a gift for attendance with Petra's signature on it.
It was a day that we will always remember fondly.
I look forward to sharing more pictures of our time together in my next post.
every quilt tells a story....
