This what a very lucky quilt looks like when a safety pin get ran over in a sewing machine. Luckily I didn't rip any holes, break my needle, or break my machine! I have learned my lesson!

I learned so much at Quilt Fest this year! I took four awesome classes.
The first one was on landscape quilting. I forgot to take any pictures, but when my project is done I will have a cute little wall hanging with a picture of a cabin with the Teton mountains in the background.
Then there was a lunch time lecture by Lisa Bongean. She owns a store called Primative Gatherings and she does a lot of Wool Quilting. She does some amazing stuff. Maybe I will take a class on that next time.
Then I took a class on making a table runner that has a bunch of flowers appliquéd around the edge. I really want to hone in my appliqué skills. I learned some cool things like how to cut out 72 flower petals fast.
Staples are so cool.
The next class was supposed to be a lecture on Glamping. (Glamour Camping.) They showed us some cool projects and gave us a binder full of awesome ideas. That first twenty minutes was cool.
Finally I took a class on doing Celtic Knot Appliqué.
I learned so much! I am looking forward to going again next year!
