There was a full house in the classroom yesterday at In Between Stitches for my Sew'n Wild Oaks class. The girls have been very busy making Country Corners blocks.
Barbara stitched a lot of her little baskets together and made a beautiful table runner with them. Barbara began making baskets for her For the Love of Baskets quilt. After several session with "Jack the Ripper", Barbara decided to sew the baskets together and call it quits with the scrappy backgrounds. She wasn't pleased with the direction the quilt was going. Barbara did the smart thing. If you don't like the direction your quilt is taking.....then stop. You will never be happy and it isn't fun to work on the project any longer. Barbara now has a beautiful table runner. She's happy, the baskets are happy, and she's free to work on a different project.
There was some beautiful applique taking shape in class for Fall and for Christmas.
There was also a lot of cutting taking place with Eilene and Laurie.
Karen shared a quilt she just finished make out of a jelly roll. So pretty!
Three cheers for Isabelle's finished top section for Harvest of Hope. Literally, the class cheered for Isabelle. Now she is ready to move on to another block for her quilt.
There is always so much inspiration in the room. The girls applaud each other and I applaud them for accomplishing so much and having so much fun while they quilt. They inspire me!
