Very relaxed, chain piecing away, laughing and chatting and making new friends!
Class ran from 1 to 6 ---because the church was being used on Sunday morning for church services ((understandable!)) and we went afterwards when the building was available.
We still had as much time to sew in an afternoon class as we would have in a full day class if we had broken for lunch ---we just sewed straight on through until it was time to pack up.
I KNOW there was a lot of cutting to do ahead of time, but I kept hearing stories of how “entire” quilts were coming out of untamed scrap boxes and the fabric never seemed to go down….EXACTLY!!
The variety of fabrics was inspiring ---the colors, textures, values and genres….
When students have their own vision and change the value placement..look what happens!
When quilters decide to take block quarters and change them further – I get excited about their choices!
And Regan, this one is for you!!
I am so happy to see Suzanne from Maine every chance I can get..what a fun sweet gal she is to be around, and she came to my classes both in Punta Gorda and in Sarasota!
We were wowed by Shirley’s gorgeous Pineapple Blossom for show & tell--
And we spent the entire afternoon just sewing our brains out and having a great time.
