We had a lot of great Show & Share in last night’s meeting of the Virginia Star Quilters of Fredericksburg, VA!
I was last here 3 years ago, and it was wonderful to see familiar faces and see what they have been up to since the last time I saw them.
Get a load of this wonderful string quilt!
The blocks finish at 3”, each with a black stripe down the center diagonal, neutrals on one side, colors on the other….fabulous! Stop for a moment to consider the amount of little bitty scraps one can use up in a simple block with oodles of piecing like this. The maker and I discussed at some length our love of little pieces and smaller blocks and how the repeat of the pattern in a smaller scale across the surface of a larger quilt is just captivating. I love this!
Hopscotch Butterscotch from Adventures with Leaders & Enders!
Scrappy Trips! Love the fun layout and the extra squares used as a top and bottom border only!
Pattern found under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog.
A beautiful Scrappy Mountain Majesties in purples and greens!
Pattern also found under the Free Patterns tab above!
Oklahoma Backroads done in greens and neutrals!
See that itty bitty triangle border? That’s all the bonus units made from the blocks themselves! Free pattern also from the Free Patterns tab.
It was a fun crowd!
We shared lots of stories, lots of inspiration and loads of laughter.
Thanks for inviting me to spend the evening with you, Virginia Star Quilters!
I’m off for a Virginia Bound workshop this morning, it’s going to be a string-packed mess of a day and I can’t wait.
When the workshop is over, I’m moving up the road to begin my time with the Cabin Branch quilters of Woodbridge, VA.
And the adventure continues!
