We pulled out our bins of 1 1/2’’ strips to quickly sew strip sets, destined for rail blocks and 25 patches without rhyme or reason – we were playing on the random side of the fence this day!
The main focus of our class was to sew in the new year by clearing out some space in our stashes….including the ugliest of the ugly strips, proving that really, truly, in this quilt EVERYTHING GOES!
Before class started, I did get a big surprise:
Allion came in with one corner of her Allietare put together:
And yes, I brought Allietare to class!
I have seen many tops coming together in our Quiltville’s Open Studio group on Facebook already! Pop on over and join if you aren’t a member yet. It’s a ton of fun! Of course, our next Mystery Monday Link-Up will be a great place to share your progress as we watch these beautiful quilts come together.

The pattern for Mad City Mama is found in my book Adventures with Leaders & Enders. Signed copies can be found in the Quiltville Store so you can join in the fun and make your own!
Sew, Ladies, Sew!
Go, Ladies, Go!
Trimming, cutting, slicing and dicing!
Look at all of this progress!
Oh, Sew Mighty Fine!!

Quiltville Quote of the Day!
I just had to put my favorite quote on a detail shot of our Allietare quilt. This little piece of wisdom is on a little card that I keep above my kitchen sink where I can be reminded of it every time I wash dishes – hey, it’s probably the longest amount of time I ever stand in once place, so it is a good place for it!
It’s not who you ARE that holds you back -
It’s who you think you’re NOT.
Have a Great Saturday, everyone – I’m off to teach a Crab Apple Workshop to an anxious bunch of eager quilters today!
