An absolutely delightful group of women gathered together at Friends Around the Block in Colusa last Saturday for my Heritage class. By the end of class, the girls had some beautiful blocks completed. I can't wait to go back and see everyone again.
The magic begins when the pieces are placed on the block layout sheet which is included in each pattern. (Unless my pattern stuffer, Mr. Joe, forgets to put one in!)
The dynamic mother-daughter duo went to town on their blocks. I love seeing this quilt made in blue!
Sharon has an eye for detail in her log cabin blocks. Working with directional fabrics in a Log Cabin block on point, can be a bit tricky.
All of the blocks were so different and so beautiful!
Here are my scrappy blocks that I made before class. My new version is going to look so different from the original. I find that when I make my patterns in an alternative colorway, the pattern has a longer shelf life......especially if I make a scrappy version. I may, just may, have to tear myself away from my quilt show preparations and make one more block today. I find them so addictive, that I can't make just one!
Here's the original Heritage. The pattern is available in my Etsy shop.
During class, Mary showed us a quilt top she just completed. This quilt uses Rachael Remembered fabrics. Love the quilt, the fabrics, and her precision.
