Here we are, the Charlie’s Angels of Scrap Quilting! LOL!
Yes, you can make a TON of progrss in a fun and easy workshop like Scrappy Bargello. Have you made one?
You need to give this a try – and since today IS National Quilting Day (Something I didn’t find out until YESTERDAY!) this would be a fun project for you to pull out and work on today!
This pattern is completely sewn in panels. 4 panels make a great lap sized quilt, add borders and it’s even more generous in size.
And yes – in a 6 hour workshop we had some top finishes!
Can you believe it?
Can we get a big TADA!!??!??!?!!!
This one by a mother/daughter tag team!
Great job, ladies!
3/4 the way and headed strong for the finish!
All in one workshop!
All in one workshop!
Cutting those strip panels! Go Yasmin, go!
Opening strip loops and stair-stepping UP!
Check out Robin’s Halloween Fun!
And the award for the best matched outfit-to-project goes to:
It was even funnier when she held up her panel before doing the subcutting because the black/tan striped panel disappeared against her black/tan striped shirt! But what a great quilt!

I’ve also changed the settings so the slide show should auto-play for you, meaning you don’t have to click it to get it started. However, if you miss the photos at the beginning, you might need to replay it to see what you missed!

SOME sewing happened last night, but not much. I was just too tired by the time I got back to my room – but I fondled the fabric a bit while watching “My best friend’s wedding” with Julia Roberts. Great movie!
TONIGHT I SEW!
Today we’ve got Cathedral Stars up on deck for 40 anxious and ready quilters – It’s going to be another great round of scrappy goodness.
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately. So much “it is what it is.” out there ---But maybe it isn’t? Maybe it Will be what we make of it!
Often what wears us down most is not the actual problem, but the constant thinking about it ever consumed with the issue. The question is not "Who can I blame?" The question is - "How can I grow and overcome this?" And when all else fails, go sew something!

Have a great National Quilting Day, everyone!
