On Thursday, I taught a Semi-Private class on paper piecing.  I had two fabulous students who wanted to learn the pattern Indian Summer.

Wonderful batiks all stacked and ready to cut.

All cut and sorted.

Some of the trimmings.

Look at these great binder clips that were used.  If you are wondering why binder clips... These keep the stacks of cut fabric in order from the way that they were cut.  Great little tip!

Organized in the order that they will be sewn.

Oh yeah... here is my sample and what the quilt will look like when done.  It is a great beginner quilt, no curves yet you get perfect sharp points!!

These are all lined up and ready to go too!!

Roberta is trimming her blocks up.

Success!! These gorgeous units were done very easily!  Now at the next class we will be working on their borders, but they have to finish their homework first!

You can find this pattern and the kit with the exact same fabrics that are shown in my sample by clicking here.

Until Next Time...

Meet the Exhibitors

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was a fantastic day at the show.  We were busy and many of the people that made some of the quilts in the show came for a visit!!  So I had the opportunity to take some photos of them with their work!

First up Mary Beth, she made this gorgeous Lollypop Trees quilt from all Kaffe Fassett Fabrics and OH MY I love it!!

Dottie, also one of our lovely volunteers, made this gorgeous Be Attitudes quilt.

The ever talented Karen, another lovely volunteer, designed this quilt and also used a ton of Kaffe!

I was especially happy to meet Renee!  We have been friends on FB for a long time and it was a pleasure meeting her and her husband.  I could have talked with her for ages.  Just as nice in person as online.  Any way, here she is with the quilt she made of her son.

And this lovely quilt of her mother.... I LOVE the green and she even used a little bling to make it sparkle.

This is the second year that Dottie designed a beautiful poster board of how quilters are givers and this one is GORGEOUS!  Thanks, Dottie!

This is what it is all about... The happy quilters keep coming!!

Until Next Time...
