Don’t we look like we could be sisters? Or cousins at least?
This is Lily, who came down from Canada ((which is really not all that far from here, when you come to think of it, even if it is a different country!!)) and we had a great time in yesterday’s Tulip Fields class from my book String Fling, shown behind us!
I do believe this is the most beautiful class room I’ve ever had ---I showed more pictures of it HERE and it is gorgeous with geranium pink walls accented by brilliant white moldings, floral carpet in black green and white and those CURTAINS! Oh my – we are taken right back to the grand old era of 1890.
Check out these chandeliers!
And then there is the carpet in the dining room ---everything kelly green, red, black, and it fades into the gorgeous colors of the window curtains beyond. There is a whole color-extravaganza of quilt inspiration everywhere you look! Who knows – maybe we’ll end up with a Grand Hotel inspired color plan for this year’s November mystery??
Carpet down the hallway – giant geranium bouquets!
Check out Charlotte’s colors for her Tulip Fields quilt ----awesome!
Everyone did a great job and I have uploaded a slide show of class photos for your viewing pleasure.
Click the image below if you are unable to view the slide show on your mobile device. You’ll be taken to the photo album for viewing, and they are worth seeing!

Last night a group of us left the hotel, ready for a more casual dining experience –and yes, we had to get that ONE obligatory front porch photo at the Grand Hotel – the world’s LONGEST front porch should not be missed!
Okay, I should have crossed the OTHER leg!
Left to right: Jill Lombard, Me, Sara Fielke, and Susan Carlson!
Today’s workshop is day one of a two day love affair with half square triangles. We are working on part 1 of Scrap Crystals from my new book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders!
And you know what I just realized that I forgot? THE DRAWING! I was supposed to draw for our 3 winners for the copies of 100 blocks by 100 designers last night and I completely forgot what day it was – OOPSIE! Let’s do that tonight.
Which means you still have time to enter ON THAT POST! If you haven’t yet – GO! I’ll draw before we head to bed tonight. I promise!
