My girls......what can I say about MY GIRLS that I haven't already said? They are incredible quilters, finishers, friends and all-round great people.
Barbara took a Bargello (spell check just changed bargello to bordello....gotta watch that) class at In Between Stitches taught by Jim Hahn. Jim is teaching this class again on May 28th. For more information click HERE.
This is a stunning quilt. Barbara said it is much easier to make than you'd think. It is all quilted and bound and ready to gift to Barbara's niece. What a lucky gal!
Look at what she put on the back of the quilt!
Melody finished her quilt top too! Incredible colors and a feast for the eyes. Well done, both of you. Both Melody and Barbara loved making their quilts. They each started with 20, one-yard cuts of fabric. Both girls highly recommend taking the class. They had a great time, learned a lot, and look what they have to show for it.
Pat made this adorable red work top and put the last border on during class.
Carol is working on her beautiful, little blocks, all delicately appliqued.
If you ever wondered what 250 small yo-yo's look like......well here you go. Lynette is on a roll.
Melody completed another flimsy during class. She has been collecting candy fabric in her travels and put them all together in her candy jars. Sweet idea.....pun intended.
Now we have the parade of Lil' Orphan Scrappy blocks.
Piles of Lil' Orphan Scrappy blocks.
......and bags of blocks.
Now we have the Walk in the Park parade of blocks. We all helped Irene pick out her sashing for her quilt.
Spending the day with my girls, is a day well spent with love and laughter in the classroom. It's quilting soul food.
My living room looks like tornado stuck as I'm getting ready to leave for the quilt show in Grass Valley tomorrow. Gail and I, (Lucy and Ethel), are hitting the road at 0-dark hundred with two SUV's packed to the gills with quilts, patterns, props, and product. I think it's time for me to buy a small trailer to schlepp all of this "stuff" around. But then there's the issue of backing up with a trailer. I don't know if Lucy can do that.....maybe Ethel would be a better backer-upper.
