We had an amazingly scrappy day with the quilters of Woodbridge, Virginia yesterday – it was our Crumbs Crumbs Crumbs workshop, and the ladies were letting go and having such a great time!
This is Marti who drove down from Delaware with her cohort and partner in quilt-crime, Carrie . It’s been really fun to spend the last few days with them here—and when they weren’t sewing like crazy women during our workshops, they turned their hotel room into the ultimate scrap quilt sweat shop. No pictures allowed! LOL!
Seriously, they’ve sewn circles around me this weekend ---I’m lagging behind and I don’t think I’ll be able to catch up to what these gals can power through their machines!
Kathi's sweet setup!
I’m still learning my new phone….and this batch for some reason, when I edited they were all right side up, when I imported several into picasa to watermark them, they all turned sideways. Okay, this is enough to make a girl scratch her head! I just loved this white little featherweight whith the red spool pin doily, the collection of blocks starting to pile up and the hexie pin cushion. FUN!
Photo Too Dark!
We were in a large room, but it had a very high ceiling and the lighting was an issue so many gals had ott lights to better see their work ---it made for interesting photo ops!
Mary Kerr and Shannon Shirley!
Two fabulous gals known in the art quilt and fiber art world came to play in my class! How FUN! I love these ladies, thanks for coming to spend the day, girls!
Shannon’s little quilt!
This was a day of play with no set pattern for the blocks – they could turn them into a pillow, a tote, a wall hanging, a table runner – the object is to play, and play we did!
All of the units except for the letters are available under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog: crumbs, maverick stars, wonky hearts! The pieced letters are found in Tonya Ricucci's book Wordplay Quilts.

Today is a moving on day for me. I’ll be with the Stone House Quilters in Manassas tonight for an evening lecture and trunk show. In between now and then?
I think some antique mall browsing is in order, don’t you??
Have a super Tuesday, everyone!
