That saved us so much time – we didn’t have to run outside and try to pick a restaurant and wait for food – we didn’t have to cart our own food in.
At 12:30pm, Karen came in, rang a bell in our classrooms to call us to meal time – and off we went!
At the end of our lunch as folks were finishing up and just gabbing amongst their tables, we held a little show and share ---you know how I love to see these!
Isn’t this Easy street with a lavender background gorgeous?
Below are several of the quilts that were brought out to inspire!
LOVE what she did for the back!
She decided not to make the quilt as big as I did, so of course had left over units --- play time opportunity! This just adds such a neat touch!
Scrappy Trips with a very purple feel too!
Scrappy Trips is found under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog. Have you made one yet?
Another scrappy trips --- love how the rings do not quite meet up, adding motion!
Another Easy Street!
Those who missed Easy Street, it’s coming up in the NEXT book – stay tuned!
Pat is a prolific quilter and took my classes in Williamsburg last year with Quiltmaker Magazine’s Block Party. This is her version of Winston Ways –So great to see it here in the city that inspired the name! Winston Ways was featured in a past issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks by 100 designers, and the full quilt pattern will ALSO be appearing in my next book!
This is Pats Bow-Dacious from Adventures with Leaders & Enders!
I love how she arranged her blocks in color bands on the diagonal!
This is Crayon Box – another from the free patterns tab and a great use of 2.5” strips!
This one is going to a little girl…the fabrics are all princess themed!
Smith Mountain Morning in gold and blue…isn’t this gorgeous?
Smith Mountain Morning is from my book Scraps & Shirttails II
Dancing 9-Patch is showing up everywhere – perfect kid quilt!
You can find Dancing 9-Patch under the free patterns tab as well!
Geese on a String!
This top is still a top --- but coming along nicely! So fun to see – you will find Geese on a String, guess where?
Under the Free Patterns Tab!
I love to see the movement of the strings in this one….it would not be the same quilt without them.
Didn’t she do a fabulous job? Orca Bay is found in String Fling.
How about THIS Easy Street of a Different Color!
This one brought serious ooh’s and ahh’s from the entire room! WOW!
This one looks so much like mine I could just take it home! LOVE IT!
So Many Easy Streets! Each one so beautiful!
((Okay, thinking I should have done a separate post on just ALL THE EASY STREETS!))
Scrappy Bargello – all in plaids from recycled shirts!
Easy Street ---Each one just different enough, showing the stash of the maker!
I can hardly wait until the next Collaboration Celebration event, where these quilters will be show & sharing their quilts made while here!
Mickey and I are enjoying our last full day at the cabin – computer time in the morning, a bunch of sewing in a bit --- do you know how nice it is to wake up to eggs and sausage cooking? Mickey was in the kitchen making breakfast when I stumbled down stairs to greet the day.
I have one word to describe this week. AWESOME!
