We have Smith Mountain Morning twice this show --- yesterday – and coming up again on Sunday. The class sold out so fast, and had enough of a waiting list that they could fill it again, so we did!
I really have to thank the staff here at Quilt Odyssey --- with a crazy luncheon lecture & trunk show starting at 12:15pm after class lets out for lunch at 12pm ---I needed a way to get things set up before our morning class session even started, taking much of the stress of logistics off my plate.
I was met by my staff helpers at 8am at my classroom. we loaded the body bags of quilts onto a rolling cart, and she proceeded to pull that cart up the ramp and across the hotel to where the lecture luncheon was being held….I followed pushing a cart full of cases of books….huffing and puffing all the way. Nothing like getting your metabolism all ramped up first thing in the morning!
We got everything set up ready to go, and I returned to class to get down into the nitty gritty of specialty rulers and making stars and log cabin blocks.
So much fabric, so much fun!
Don’t these gals look like a fun bunch? They are!
We sewed and sewed and cut and laughed and stitched and unstitched and stitched some more!
Oh, and did I mention that we are supplied a bottomless basket of Hershey’s Kisses? And they refill it every night?! Oh Boy!
Take a look at these blocks – they are fabulous! So many wonderful color combinations ---makes me want to just chain myself to my machine and SEW!
Today is “Tumalo Trail” day! We’ll be doing more pedal to the metal sewing!
