We gathered, all 32 students and myself for a Jared Takes A Wife workshop. You can find the pattern under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog.
What a wonderful mix of ladies!
Susan was our hand piecer, and I swear she could hand piece just as fast and as accurately by hand as most could do by machine!
Here she is sewing one of the squares on top of the star point rectangle….just as easy as if it were breathing!
I think I’m going to have to give this hand piecing a lot more thought…it sure is portable….she keeps pieces in the car and stitches when ever she has a few moments of waiting time.
Her block parts are laid out on the table….and while everyone else was lugging in mats, rulers, rotary cutters, machines, and all else, she carried in….her sewing basket. Yes….I think I’m going to have to really think on this! The hexies have been great for travel…but you can pretty much hand piece ANYTHING!
Sue's block as we were auditioning centers….
Everyone got a TON done!

And I just may find myself taking a little walk at lunch time in search of SANDALS!
I'm feeling very summery and my usual footwear has just been TOO DANG HOT!!
