I had a fun day at Cloth and Quilts in Turlock last Saturday. This is a fairly new area for me to teach, and I had the privilege of meeting a whole new group of wonderful quilters. Quilters really are the best!
The classroom is very large and there were 20 quilters hanging on every word I said. During the class, we had fun going on fieldtrips in the shop to look for the perfect fabric. This shop has some of the best color walls, and they offer a great selection of fabrics, notions, books and patterns.
I began the day by slipping off of my chair. How embarrassing! I dropped a ruler and leaned over to pick it up and the chair slipped right out from under my bottom. As I peered over my table, from the floor, at the full classroom of worried quilters. I said, "Now for my next trick!" No worries, I had plenty of padding to cushion my slow motion slip.
I didn't take nearly enough pictures of the wonderful work completed in the class.
Isn't this fabric fun!
The room was full of wonderful fabric collections. I must have a long talk with my photographer and remind her to take more pictures of the piles and I do mean piles of fabric!
The center of this block would be great in a Lucy Boston block!
I presented five different components and formulas during the class. Don't ask me why I didn't get pictures of some of the sweet little double flying geese that were flying around the room.
Playtime on the design wall.
Here are the wonderful little Y-squares arranged to make a border or sashing.
The girls were great and so welcoming to me. I knew a couple of them from the Lucy Boston class earlier in the week. Thank you for the wonderful day and I'm looking forward to another visit to Cloth and Quilts soon.
