Empty Spools Seminar at Asilomar in Walnut Creek, California. We took a class with Sandi Cummings called "Beyond the Block". Of course we pick the brightest colors we can find, screaming orange and green, blues and purples! Well I got quite a bit done, then felt like I was painting my self into corners, so I put the UFO (Un-Finished Object) in the cabinet and periodically would bring it out continue on, paint into corners and put it away. Well in the summer of 2011 I decided that this was not going to get the best of me, and persevered and finally finished the quilt! I call it my Crazy Cat Quilt because of all the Laurel Burch fabrics!
