I may be good with faces, and remembering where people are from, but I am completely bad with names and I can’t help it when I had over 100 students during the course of the show, so they will just have to forgive me –there is not time to document and take notes while snapping pictures as furiously as I could so we could get sewing again!
These photos are a compilation of all the show and share from Day 1. There are so many wonderful quilts it will take me a few posts to share them all.
Isn’t this Smith Mountain Morning great? I taught this here last year, and we had such a great time. The two sweet gals here are from Maryland, and they were insane enough to take classes with me again this year!
Smith Mountain Morning is found in Scraps & Shirttails II HERE.
Amish Crab Apples!
Another Marylander! She used Amish solids to recreate Crab Apples from Adventures with Leaders & Enders, another class taught here in Hershey. I love how her checkerboard tree tops and border just sparkle! A really great quilt with a lot of eye-appeal!
Pineapple Blossom variation….this is so graphic!
The gold and brown fabrics just radiate –and her use of one fabric as the sashings gives a window pane effect. Pineapple Blossom is found under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog. Have you made one?
Tumalo Trail! GREAT colors! Also found in Scraps & Shirttails II.
Star Struck #1 love the pale blue and brown fabrics….YUMMY!
Star Struck #2! Those Maryland girls are dynamos!
Star Struck is also found under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog.
Blue Ridge Beauty GORGEOUS!
Any quilt set ‘Barn Raising” captures my heart…I love this one! Blue Ridge Beauty is also from Adventures With Leaders & Enders.
Dancing Nine-Patch is a new addition to our free patterns tab!
This will be a sweet baby quilt when it is finished – the fabrics are really fun and scrappy, and the yellow sashing and borders perfectly cheery!
We had several easy streets over the course of the weekend ---all of them beautiful!
Easy Street was last year’s mystery and has been retired for inclusion in my next book, More Adventures with Leaders & Enders is due out this coming spring 2014. Can’t wait!
Easy Street in different colors! Wow!
It’s an honor and a treat to have these ladies bring their quilts and tops to share with me and the others in the class. They all did such a terrific job and it inspires me so much!
Okay, this is a crazy run around day – leaving tomorrow morning for Alaska, and there are a 101 must-do’s on my list.
IF –and this is a BIG IF. IF I can get them all done by a decent hour, I will try to do Quilt-Cam tonight at 9pm Eastern.
I will post this evening at 6pm Eastern IF this is definitely going to be a go or not….I hope you understand why. I’d love to do it, but first things first ---so check back with me later!
