It was THIS kind of fun, all day long!
And the ladies got so much done on their blocks in our Carolina Christmas workshop!
Carolina Christmas was first presented here on the blog as a mystery in 2009. Has it really been 6 years?
I love this quilt, and it will STAY out as we move into fall and the holidays. It’s time for its rotation on the bed as well!
We worked with the Easy Angle Ruler cutting triangles from 4 1/2’’ and 2 1/2’’ strips. We worked on our favorite of all units ((And yes I am saying this tongue in cheek!)) Diamond in a Rectangle!
There were Broken Dishes units, combination pieced triangles – we ran the gamut of units found in many traditional block designs and mastered them all!
Colors not true!
A bit better!
Of course, everyone had fun pointing out the various aspects of the Flip Side:
So much fun!
Can you see the family resemblance? Aunt and Niece!
Friends that stitch together!
Rapt attention at the demo table!
This is how it’s done, girls!
All of the blocks!
Some awesome quilts under way!
That’s a LOT of great progress for one day!
The pattern for Carolina Christmas is found in my book Scraps & Shirttails II. Signed copies are available in Quiltville's Store.

And with that our 3 days of workshops with Mary’s Quilt Shop in Bedford PA are over – SO FAST! How did that happen?
Last night was for unwinding. Some hexagon stitching ((Section not completely added yet but almost!)) some fabulous dinner and great company and time for a relaxing card came before bed.
UNWIND. it is such an appropriate term when schedules and agendas are wound so tightly with everything needing to fall into place without a lot of wiggle room.
And we did!
I’ll be here at Mary’s until I leave Thursday morning for the next retreat in another part of Pennsylvania – I’ll be teaching at Missy Molino’s Quilt Odyssey retreat at Allenberry Resort in Boiling Springs.
While Mary heads into the quilt shop to work this morning, I’ll be right here at her dining room table working on a certain book whose deadline is looming every closer.
Have a great Monday, everyone!
