Full full class at 34 students strong today!
Would you believe with this many women sewing and pressing that we actually had to turn the heat off, and the a/c on?!
It was great fun to see everyone, some had taken other workshops this week, while some had come in just for this day – a one day Mystery that shall remain nameless and photoless until it shows up in Quiltmaker Magazine for their May/June issue!
When class was over I boxed it all up to Fedex on up to Golden, Colorado so it will be arriving there about the same time I arrive in Phoenix, with my quilt bag one quilt lighter!
This is not everyone!
I am standing behind the last row, but there are a couple of folks on side tables that missed this camera angle, and there are a few around the corner of the wall that can’t be seen, but I know right where they are!
At the time this photo was taken MY quilt had not yet been revealed so all were working on parts without knowing where they would turn up in the finished quilt. Don’t you love the suspense?
We missed you, Shelia Gilbert!
Shelia has been with us in previous years but was unable to come this time. Hopefully she will be back next year. Ana wanted to be sure she also got a shout out photo with the both of us.
Helpful Quilter’s Tip:
Emergency Thread Cone Holder!
I thought this was ingenious!
One thing I WANT to share from today! We had a couple of Grand Illusion finished tops!
Oh so speedy!
This top was finished by Robin, part of our Louisiana contingency, if you remember she was the first one to bring in her Celtic Solstice top after the reveal last year! I just love the motion this quilt has!
And another, slightly different, every bit as fun!
From what I can tell, there are Grand Illusion finishes happening all over the place, and I can’t wait to see them on our next Mystery Monday Link-Up.
As for the rest of the show and share, I’ll be setting up a slide show of the quilts shown over the past several days to air tomorrow since I can’t do a slide show of what we did in class today.
Tomorrow is an Orca Bay workshop with the Garland guild which finishes up my time in Plano, and I’ll be moving on to McKinney for a couple of days with Quilt Asylum!
