Meet Don and Bill! Two fabulous quilters who got involved with quilting because their wives also quilt!
From what I gather, the husbands even maintain their own stashes apart from that of the wives – and the quilts that come from the hands of these gentleman bless the lives of so many others through the Prayers & Squares group they run.
It was a lot of fun to spend the day with these two “Roosters” and the other ladies in class enjoyed the camaraderie as well!
Don’t you love the black background with the multi-colored batiks shown here in Don’s block?
Here is the block finished!
Bill’s first block quarter!
Our girls were getting a lot done too!
Pressing and Trimming duty!
Sandi and Kerri showing off their blocks!
Each Scrap Crystals block has 96 pieces including 32 half square triangles that finish at 1.5” – didn’t they do great?

After workshop dinner at Indigo Grill in downtown San Diego!
What a way to enjoy the last bit of a great trip!
((And no, I didn’t eat that red Thai pepper!! too hot!))
I’m sitting here typing this post in the Atlanta airport…..I managed a meager 2.5 hours sleep on my red eye flight…there WILL be a big nap this afternoon! But first I have to make it through the next 3 hours of layover before my next flight to Greensboro boards.
Is it possible to say that I didn’t even baste a single hexie this trip home? And that I will be sleeping in the passenger seat of the van all the way to Wilkesboro when I land? And that I will be going straight to bed once we arrive at Quilt Villa?
And can you believe that I’m not even planning much machine work this weekend? I’ve got a hexie section to add – I’ve got a binding and a hanging sleeve to fix on a couple of trunk show quilts. There is one quilt that NEEDS a hanging sleeve because it never had one.
I think I’m calling this one a hand work only weekend…with mandatory feet up in my comfy chair at the cabin.
I’m thinking our best bet for Quilt-Cam will be Tuesday evening at 9pm EST. More info to follow on that, but I’m pretty sure that will work.
Next post from the cabin ---
