This is what I woke up to this morning -----I’m not sure I’m ready for this yet, but it sure is pretty. It is snowing in Colorado Springs, and this morning it is cold enough to STICK!
Strings and strings and more strings – and quarter square triangles!
That’s how quilters make Pfeffernüsse, the QUILT kind, not the delectable edible kind – which I have a huge hankering for every time I teach this class.
There will be the edible kind in Germany in DECEMBER! Hopefully I’ll be sharing some with YOU!
It was just the most glorious Autumn day yesterday – bright blue skies, sunshine, clear mountain views ---so I really didn’t expect to open my curtains to find THIS outside!
We had a rip roaring silly good time yesterday!
Fun at the ironing station!
You know how all the good gossip is said to happen around the water cooler at the office? Well, you can always find interesting conversation and tid bits at the ironing stations in quilt class!
The variations of quilts and color ways were many! We had browns and greens, ,or pinks and brows, or reds and blues, and even though this next photo is from THIS class, it was posted by Charlotte, a former student to our Quiltville Friends facebook page yestderday and I’m including it here as design inspiration….Turquoise and ORANGE! Whoowhooo!
Isn’t this fun? I think I like hers better than mine:
Pfeffernüsse is found in my book String Fling. Signed copies can be ordered HERE.
Remember, that quilt patterns are like recipes – just guidelines and you are free to choose your own colors, style, settings, borders ---it’s a jumping off point, not having to be made exactly as the pattern is written! Have fun with it!

Today we will be digging more into the crumbs for a Love Shack workshop! It promises to be a load of fun with Maverick Stars, Wonky hearts, an intro to pieced letters, a whole lot of laughter, chatter, and friendship.
And of course, making a huge mess in the process --isn't that the most fun of all?
