I spent a fun day in the classroom with the Independence Hall quilters in Arnold. The girls were busy making Lucy Boston, or Patchwork of the Crosses blocks.
Some of the girls brought their own fabrics, and some bought kits that I'd put together.
They fussy cut and basted throughout our time together.
They had gorgeous results to show by the end of the day.
Each of my kits include a block layout sheet to help keep you organized. I'm a big fan of the sheets.
The classroom is spacious and bright.
The girls were so much fun and I really enjoyed getting to know them better, and I loved their creativity. If you have a guild in your area, get involved, and spend time with quilters who share your passion.
I'm getting back to my pumpkins this morning. I have to make another pumpkin and add a little creature of two. I haven't decided yet what I'm going to do for a border. This is a work in progress.
