Gail and I spent two wonderful days in great company with the Foothill Quilters Guild in Auburn, CA. We literally went back to school on Tuesday, as the class was held in an old school house which is now the Civic Center.
The very talented girls dug right in and embraced Patchwork Math. I introduced a new component and equation every hour on the hour throughout the day. No slackers here! They kept right up and I was able to introduce an extra component.
Don't worry, I let them out for recess and a nice lunch break.
I put together a few collages of the girls' work.
There was a wide range of beautiful fabrics in the classroom.
From reproduction, to modern to Christmas fabrics.....it was all beautiful.
The classroom was downstairs in an old building which reminded me so much of my old elementary school in Paradise, CA. You could almost hear the voices from the past in the hallways upstairs.
This was our playground for the day, a roomy, and well-lit classroom.
Auburn is a charming little town located in the foothills of Northern California. It is one of the oldest gold mining towns in the state. It is well worth visiting and exploring the quaint downtown area. Make sure you stop and see Suzanne and Candy at The Whistle Stop Quilt Shop located just outside of town. Gail and I both found lots of quilty goodness that followed us home.
