So the workshop with Quilting Modern's Katie Pedersen was great fun! Since this post is photo-heavy, I'll just comment a bit about each . . .
Ready to go with fabric 'kits' from Katie . . .
Katie's stash - brought to share!
Playing on the design wall with our strip sets for strip-piecing.
Katie's advice: "distance is your friend". ie. step back to get a better view.
Just my strips, ready to piece

Mocking up my Improvisational Log Cabin block on the design wall.
Finished Improvisational Log Cabin block, for which I have further plans!
My try at Improvisational Curves
My modern crazy-pieced block - still in progress.
The scraps, rummaged.
Basically, we covered the techniques in the book, with lots of room for questions, playing with fabric, and Katie sharing from her experience. I'm anxious now to incorporate what I've seen and learned into future projects!
