Grammy Squares Class is in Session

Hello Everyone,

Another great day in the classroom at In Between Stitches last Saturday.  The girls really put a lot of effort and thought into their little hexagons.

All of the following pictures will give you some ideas for beautiful and different colorways.

Barbara really went to town on Saturday!  I guess I should tell you that she is a pattern tester, or I can let you believe she sews at the speed of light! (Which I think she does.)

There were many different methods of fabric organization in the classroom.

There's the ruggedly handsome Mr. Joe's Strip'n Sew which he is mass producing.  (At last count, I think we have ten in the garage!) You can't rush these old, retired people.  Maybe I should have Barbara work in the shop with him, and 100 of them would be made by now.  Barbara, do you think you can run power tools, while sewing blocks together?  On second thought, the sawdust might be an issue on your fabrics.


Toilet paper roll, ingenious!

I'm really looking forward to seeing Pat's blocks!  So different, so sweet, they will be adorable.

Isabelle, I forgot to take a picture of your little bee block!  Next time.  Here are the girls proudly displaying their blocks.  You'll be seeing more and more of these blocks over the next few months.

The Grammy Square patterns are now available at the shop.  We don't have it on the website yet, but if you want to call the shop, I'll be there today and I can take your order over the phone.  It will be on the website soon.  I'm also putting Grammy Squares starter kits together.  They will also be on the website this week.  It will help "jump start" the process using fabrics I've selected.

To all the girls in the class on were delightful!!  You have no idea how much fun I had spending the day with YOU!  Thank you, thank you for your friendship and your support of me, and my patterns.  All of you are my inspiration.
