Mokihana’s Hawaiian Quilting Journey: Class and the start of a quilt! Part One

Oh wow. The class with Nancy Lee Chong was fantastic! I was a great enabler and encouraged my friends Susie and Julie to take the plunge too. The class was held at A Common Thread quilt store in Lake Oswego, a wonderful place filled with absolutely wonderful fabrics.

Nancy is an awesome teacher! She’s friendly, informative and extremely knowledgeable. She made learning fun, and had all kinds of tip and techniques to show us, so that by the end of the weekend we all had a working knowledge of how to begin our quilts.

When we first got there we were a little intimidated by her amazing quilts, as she’d brought a number of gorgeous ones that she’d finished over the years. It was hard to believe that we’d be able to actually create something similar. Nancy’s use of colors and combinations of fabrics gave us a lot of inspiration and we could hardly wait to get started.
