Another busy week here under the oaks (pines) at Sew'n Wild Oaks. Thelma and Louise, (Gail and Lynn) hit the road again, and traveled to the Sierra Quilt Guild of Tuolumne County in Sonora yesterday for another Patchwork Math class. I taught this class to the guild last Spring, so this was Patchwork Math Part Two.
First we had a bit of a refresher course before I introduced some new components. The girls produced some great looking blocks!
This is always the fun part. Once a few components are made, it is time to play with arranging and rearranging the components.
They were all excellent students!
Here is a variation on the parallel geese. This arrangement would make a fantastic border.
It always amazes me when I see what the students produce. They make the same components, but the difference in fabric choice and component arrangement, make the blocks look so different.
It was our pleasure to be in Sonora again with all of you. We enjoyed seeing some familiar faces along with being able to meet some new quilters. Always a treat for us.
Home sweet home is calling out my name. I've been on the road so much over the last five weeks, that my home, husband and dog have been terribly neglected. I'm sure I can write my name across every undusted surface of the house. My sewing room is the worst!
Little League is winding down.....insert sad face here. I managed to be home to cheer for most of the games during the season. We'll watch the last two games of the season this week. The two little boys were so much fun to watch, along with seeing both of our sons coaching their respective teams. Insert proud Mom face here!
