Yesterday was our Talkin’ Turkey workshop, as you saw from the iphone-o-gram I sent yesterday!
For those of you looking for the pattern, the block can be found in Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks by 100 designers vol 5 ((the most recent one out)) and the full quilt pattern is in my new book String Fling. The units in the quilt are simple --- 9 patch, string blocks, flying geese – lots of them!
It was fun for me to see the other color ways that students were working up their projects in. We did have a lot of red/neutral – but we also had blue/neutral, some purple/green, some green/neutral and some random scrappy everything to name a few! And the pink, oh yes, don’t forget the pink!
The pink blocks are special. Our pink quilter is celebrating 4 years post breast cancer surgery. She is here with a dear friend, both of them relatively new quilters. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them and hope to see much more of them over this weekend! After all, there are still TWO WHOLE DAYS of classes left here in Williamsburg!

Let’s let the pictures in the slide show do the talking for you ----the blocks these ladies were turning out are just amazing!
Today? Winston Ways! Or is it Midnight Flight --- I guess I better find out before class starts just to be sure!
The big excitement tonight is Jennifer Chiaverini’s lecture --- and I can’t wait to meet her in person and to hear her presentation!
It’s going to be another full great day in Williamsburg!
