We had a super wonderful day with the North East Crazy Quilters in our Scrappy Bargello workshops –BOTH of them!
Due to so many sign ups, we offered this class as a half day workshop in two sessions in order to fit every one in!
Who doesn’t like a strip quilt that can be completed in record time?!
I don’t think they believed me at first when I told them that most everyone would have ONE PANEL done by the end of our half day workshop, but they did!
This quilt is so speedy, it is great for charity quilts, quilts of valor, graduation gifts, wedding gifts, just because I love you gifts!
And EVERYTHING goes ---go as scrappy or as planned as you want.
Grab a friend and sew strips into pairs!
Do NOT sew them light/dark/light/dark or you will just end up with a checkerboard and no up/down stair steps will be visible…mix them up ---go for broke! No pressing until your entire panel is sewn!
Ready to be pressed!
Pressing the panel!
When strips are sewn into a panel –there is strategic pressing so that seams will nest automatically when we sub -cut and re-sew!
Check the free patterns tab above for the pressing directions! You know you are going to make this one, or if you have already made one, you are going to want to make another!
Giving pressing advice!
Hurry up! You are hogging the iron!
Slicing up the panel!
Re-assembly taking place!
One up hill panel DONE!
These gals got so much done, we gathered for group photos at the end of each session!
Fabulous job, everyone!

It was a very full long day, and we restored ourselves with a bit of yumminess down along the shores of Lake Erie.
Wouldn’t I love to spend the summer here!
Of course, if your food isn’t fun, just stick a bird in it!
And let me tell you – when fitbit later sends you a message that you need 2,000 more steps to meet your daily goal…it’s an easy excuse to take a short walk for this:
Lovely evening down in Erie, PA!
This is my plan for the next Quilt-Cam: I leave Sunday early early for Sacramento. We haven’t had an afternoon weekend session for quite a while, and I’d love to do this next one at a time that is more convenient for the European Contingency.
Our next Quilt-Cam is scheduled for 2pm Eastern on SATURDAY afternoon. No whining – if you can’t make it, it will be in the archives and you can catch up later!
Wednesday! Make it a good one!
