Saturday Workshop

Class was fun on Saturday and below are the first four blocks I finished in class. Later I finished four more blocks so I have a total of eight blocks done......and many more to sew.


Here is our teacher Debbie talking about sewing the blocks and how to achieve the look we want.


A couple people in the class made what I call a controlled scrappy block...Carol's is below...beautiful.
Pat used her black and white collection of fabric with purple centers another beautiful block.
Pegi wanted to use up her vast collection of Christmas fabric......what a cool idea.
Other quilters in the class did the scrappy look like me.......use up at those FQ's and scraps from other projects.
We found out that you need lots of different sized strips from 1 1/4 inch to 3 inches....you don't want the strips to match when you sew them together......no seams to match.....a quilters dream.
I have a meeting on my annual September retreat tonight.....we're going to talk about food and quilting projects we want to work on together......I going to teach the coiled fabric bowls that I made a few months ago. We go on retreat on September 12 to 16th. We'll stop at the Sonora Quilt Show on Sunday before we go home.
