The classroom at In Between Stitches was filled with bundles of gorgeous fabrics just waiting to be transformed into beautiful blocks made from quilting components from my Patchwork Math book.
The girls learned the formulas and precision piecing techniques for six different components which can be used in blocks, sashings or borders.
After lunch, the design walls came alive!
This offset arrangement is so creative.
The blocks started small and then they grew into table toppers or just additional blocks.
This is one of my favorite classes to teach because I never know what the end product is going to be. They are all so unique and wonderful. It was a great class filled to the brim with so many nice quilters. I think I have the best job in the world when I get to spend my day in the classroom, in a quilt shop, surrounded by wonderful quilters, and good, kind-hearted people!!
My apologies to Dolores.....I forgot to take pictures of your two beautiful blocks. I'm so sorry. To make matters worse, I also forgot to take a picture of the cake Dolores brought in for our afternoon pick-me-up that her granddaughter made. Boy, I really dropped the ball big time. I'll make it up to you somehow.
I'm off to the shop this morning for my Monday workday. I saw some boxes just waiting to be unpacked when I was there Saturday. I can't wait to see what was inside. It is just like Christmas when the UPS deliveries come to the back door. I hope your day is full of good surprises.
