Workshop with Yoko Saito in Bangkok and My Weekend Wrap-up

My last week highlight was the workshop with Yoko Saito, a famous quilter from Japan. 
It was one of the best workshop I have attended. Not only I got to learn some techniques, I was amazed by Yoko's demeanor. She is very friendly and would answer all the questions we had during the class. 

This is a picture of the bag we learned at the workshop.

She told us all the techniques we need to know to make this bag but since there are so many details I think it would take a very long time to finish it :).

The bag is one of the projects in her new book.

So yesterday I was still high from my workshop experience, I finished the HSTs for the Sparkle Quilt Along and made a cupcake pincushion from a pattern I bought from PatchworkPottery. The pincushion was very easy to make. I think it would make a great gift for sewing friend.

That's a wrap-up of my week :)

Thank you very much for your visit! I hope my blogging friends have a wonderful week.
