Elizabeth Hartman Classes Tomorrow…and other stuff

This Saturday, TOMORROW, is the start of the two, count them, TWO classes by Elizabeth Hartman at Modern Domestic. I feel kind of selfish leaving for what will amount to 2 whole Saturdays…hopefully everyone will survive at home. EEEK.

I prepped my ‘school bag’ for class this weekend.

For the Text Quilt workshop, I picked up the Comma by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics from the Fat Quarter Shop. It looks like they might be out of the fat quarter pack….but they still have a large stock. I do love it.

It’s was hard to settle on which fabrics to pick…

I almost didn’t, and almost grabbed the pink and purple Konas I have like in the Sorbetto post, but I settled on the mustardy-yellows with the gray print and also from FQS.

What do you think? I have two classes, so next week I can take a different color combo…maybe I’ll venture back to my purples and pinks then?

I also picked up some Elizabeth Hartman patterns…how can you NOT want this bag? And if you don’t have any of her books, her Modern Patchwork book is great. I have the iBook version, it’s available for Kindle, and I know lots of local shops have it.

Oh, wow. Between that and working on the Laurel pattern, I seem all local stalker-y. Before you go there, go here. I am SOOOO getting the Pavlova pattern next for my knits. The lovely StephC is alllll the way in Australia now, and look how simple it is! I’ll tell you, like with music, more complicated is not necessarily better. I prefer a good, simple pattern. With pockets.

  1. I hope you have a great time! Elizabeth Hartman is my quilt hero. And I love Comma too! This is going to sound crazy, but I’m backing my Glam Garlands quilt with the Comma intersecting circles in yellow. Jealous and excited for you.

    1. Really?? You *know* I heart that quilt! Yay! I’m so glad! My color choices blended in quite a bit together, which doesn’t make it crazy-pow-amazing, but the boy will dig it. 🙂

      She’s great. Truly patient, very thorough, and sweet as can be. I feel a bit weird being the only one that signed up for both classes….but oh well.
