On Sunday, we moved our second Jamestown Landing Class to the afternoon!
Our classes were at the college, and we were able to get in and set up at noon. This meant that our class would go straight through without taking a lunch break, to give this second group as much hands-on as Friday’s class!
And since I was then free for the MORNING, Jan and her partners in quilt-crime invited me over for a lovely brunch! Doesn’t the table look festive with the fiestaware?
In the big blue bowl on the right are the migas that Mi made –a simple concoction of eggs scrambled with pieces of torn corn tortilla and cooked together. There is a platter of condiments so you can dress yours up how you like it –green onion, diced tomato, cheese, cilantro!
The hit of the day was a specialty made by Jan’s hubby – sausage stuffed jalapenos that he grilled outside before bringing them in for our devourment!
You can’t miss that lovely fruit bowl! MMM!
The conversation was lively and full of laughter and quilt-speak!
From here off we went to the college for our class. And that no-lunch break thing --- do you think quilters EVER go hungry?
Of course, there were plenty of snacks ---I think every time I circled the room I had to stop by the bowl of cashews mixed with candy corn. MMMM, come to mama, you sweet-and-salty-goodness!
Another sweet treat?
Meet Barbie TOO!!
Yes, this is the original paint job! This is how she was made!
This Barbie has a purple face plate and a purple thread tensioner! COOL!
Brother has been making sewing machines since at LEAST the 1950s, and this one comes from about 1967 and was made in Japan. She is the same body style as my PETULA, and came in the same case! It’s likely they came from the same plant, but received different paint colors.
Half way through class we stopped for a bit of a stretching break and some quick show and tell:
The last time I was in the area, I taught for the Fronterra Quilt Guild. Mi was in my Oklahoma Backroads class – about 3 years ago! She worked on her quilt top at retreat and got it to the size she wants the top to be..isn’t it gorgeous?
You will find the free pattern for Oklahoma Backroads under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog.
At my last visit she also fell in love with my Crabapples quilt from Adventures with Leaders & Enders. When a friend gifted her the tree trunk units, already paper pieced and ready to go, Mi took on the job or piecingt the tree tops to complete the blocks and finished this quilt – it’s beautifully quilted, and the binding is in progress. I love this quilt!
Annie shared her Chunky Churndash! Such a happy snuggle quilt!
Pattern can also be found under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog. The blocks are made completely from 1.5” strips and 2.5” squares!
Bricks and Stepping Stones in a rainbow of colors. SWEET!

The day moved so quickly that there was little opportunity for taking photos of everyone’s progress – but I did get some for a very short slide show!
