Just because I took a few days off from blogging doesn't mean I wasn't involved in quilting. I've been working at the shop and teaching....so now it's time to get back to blogging.
Yesterday was the first class session of my new Country Charmer pattern. I told the girls they were my Pattern Test Dummies! PTD's for short, which is better than being a Crash Test Dummy. They all came through with flying colors and are on their way to making a beautiful quilt.
Madonna had a wonderful assortment of reds and greens for her quilt. She transformed her fabric from this...
....to this. Since there are 53 pieces of fabric in the 8-1/2" block, I included a block layout sheet in the pattern. Once you cut your pieces, you just place them on the layout page. All is well with the world until you sneeze, and 53 little pieces scatter across the table.
Barbara is starting with a beautiful selection of Jo Morton fabrics. She decided to make the "chain" alternating in red and blue.
Barbara also decided to have two different background fabrics.
I liked the way the girls were thinking outside the box.
Kaye also had a great collection of red and greens.
Kaye loves plaids as much as I do and take a look at her center.
Lisa is turning her fabric collection from this....
...to this. A sweet little block. All of Lisa's chains are going to be yellow/gold.
Here is Lisa's sashing/border fabric.
The girls have their homework assignments which are due on the 15th of November. It will be so much fun to see their creations when we meet again next month.
Thank you all for the fun day.
