This past weekend (March 1st & 2nd) I traveled “over the mountain” to Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, Home of The Bridge of Flowers! Last year, Becki, owner of A Notion to Quilt, asked me if I’d be interested in designing a “bridge” pattern. No hesitation on my part, I loved the idea. If you’ve read any of my past blog entries about Becki’s shop, you’ll remember that I’ve mentioned the bridge many times. It’s definitely a destination to visit, AND so glad that it’s still standing, even after Irene tried to wipe it out!
So, Becki and I set up a class and the response was overwhelming – so much that we needed to book TWO days for it. (It’s only a one day project) So I got to hang out with 16 great quilters AND enjoyed my favorite shop in MA! By the way, hands down, A Notion To Quilt has the LARGEST collection of batiks that I’ve seen in ANY shop (and I’ve been to LOTS of them)
So, lets get right to the quilters and their bridges. They all couldn’t believe that they could make this pattern in one day, but as you’ll see, they DID!
