A Creative Workshop

The Lab, Minneapolis, Water Colors, Meghan Gonzalez

Good Morning, Quilters!

My daughters recently treated me to a creative evening out.  We all went to A Watercolor Creative Workshop from The Lab, Minneapolis  

The class was taught by Megan Gonzalez of MaeMae & Co.

The class was held in a beautiful space in downtown Minneapolis.We had a great time playing with a few new art supplies.

The three hour class really wasn’t enough time to delve deeply into watercolor painting, but we all left wanting to learn more.

Of course, I had to put my spin on it!!!

Now the wheels are really turning!

What about YOU?

Have YOU ever tried watercolors?

Have YOU tried an exploratory class on anything lately?

Do YOU creatively cross-train?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Happy Watercolor Quilting,

Lori

If you were stitching this motif on a middle border, you could stitch in the ditch to connect each tulip.
