My girls and I were together on Tuesday in the classroom at In Between Stitches. They are always THE BEST! Such a pleasant and creative group of women.
Irene created a beautiful basket of fall flowers with a blue bird of happiness for you from my Harvest of Hope pattern. She cut the flowers from a single fat quarter to fill her basket.
Suzanne has four wonderful pumpkins made for her Harvest of Hope quilt.
Then I have my "Lucy" girls working on Lucy Boston. Intricate and beautiful.....each and every one. The blocks and the girls!
Suzanne is also working on the baskets for Once Upon a Vine. This quilt was inspired from the fact that we live in an area quickly becoming known for great wine.
Judy is halfway through her blocks for Grammy Squares.
Then I have my "scrappy" girls working on Lil' Orphan Scrappy.
Barbara got her Christmas blocks joined together with the little Y-square sashing. The blocks look as though they are suspended on latticework. You can view the video to learn how to make the Y-squares and get the formulas HERE at The Quilt Show.com
Evelynne is also making tiny Y-squares to put in her sashing her blocks for Winters Warmth.
Pat is making beautiful Dresden baskets. She had a fabulous selection of '30s fabrics to choose from at her table.
Barbara is framing a cross stitch that she made a few years ago. She used the Patchwork Math book to calculate the size she needed for the parallel geese for the border.
Sometimes I just stop what I'm doing and look around to admire the walls that the girls have decorated with their handiwork. Customers can't help but stroll into the classroom to have a closer look. They are incredible quilters. I love spending time with my girls.
Thank you for all of your comments about the sampler quilt and different border options. I hope to get them on today and I'll post a picture tomorrow of what I decided to do.....it wasn't an easy decision to make.
My blogging schedule is going to be very erratic over the next few weeks. I have a lot on my plate between participating and having a booth in two quilt shows, company arriving from North Carolina, a birthday party for my grandson, (my DIL invited 40 people to this and it' a swimming party at my house....she has now been written out of the will!) There's Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane nursery, and I'm teaching a full Patchwork Math workshop on Sept. 29th at the nursery......and that's all in the next three weeks! So if you don't hear from me, I'll be curled up in a fetal position in my quilting room.
