Ann Sutton, of Bunny Hill. Had to have my pic with her. You know how I've been keeping up with the free Snowbound patterns she's putting up monthly. You can follow her at her blog.
Amy Butler in person! She was so very gracious. She had lots of slides showing us her studio and newest lines. We received some free patterns from her that you can access here.
Edyta Sitar was very moving and inspiring. She showed us many projects made from her book
Friendship Triangle. She had a basket of "Cinnamon Sticks" (6 1/2" rolls of fabric) paired with a paper that when sewn as directed and cut makes 28 half triangle squares.
The idea is to keep a triangle or two then turn in the rest to a participating shop. You will get back that number of blocks from friends working on the same program. There is usually a party involved with lots of beautiful quilts. I have the cinnamon stick she was holding in her hand. (I know, I'm such a groupy).
