Just when you think it is so hot in Georgia you can’t stand it, the clouds gather, the sky opens up and the rain comes in buckets!
This is what happened in the afternoon during our workshop, and as we were all inside sewing away, as long as the power stayed on (which it did) we didn’t care one bit.
Let it rain, let it pour, we are here to sew together!
And miracle of miracles, it cleared up by the time we were ready to load it all into our cars at the end of the day.
Something FUN about this trip….there are NO repeats amongst the 8 workshops I am teaching. ALL different! And some haven’t been taught in a while, and it is always great to bring those basck out.
There is a whole lot of scrap busting going on deep in the heart of Georgia!
Our workshop at the Sharpsburg Town Hall!
What a great place for a quilt group sew day. The guild here is lucky enough to use this building every Tuesday for sit n sew. Isn’t that great? I keep thinking of things that I want when I retire, and a group to sew with on a weekly basis in a beautiful facility such as this is top of my list.
It didn’t take long before we had THIS going on!
Press for Success!
We do the best we can to facilitate nested seams along the way. In this case, the ladder block has seams pressed toward the half square triangles and away from the 4 patch corners. The star block is opposite, away from the star points and toward the 4 patches. Seams on the 4 patches are spun in ONE direction so that they will nest each other when the blocks are set together in the quilt.
This is going to be gorgeous!
We did a fun little thing since the tables were all around the outside of the room, leaving a big empty spot on the floor. We laid out out blocks!
Everyone in the circle!
We got THIS much done!
You can tell that I have been on the road for 5 days by this point. I wanted to do a circle video panning everyone with their blocks, but as I got started, I forgot where I was, and the name of the guild! LOL!
We still had a super day!
Even if I don’t know where I am! LOL!
You’ll find the rest of our day in photos in the slide show below.
You’ll find the free pattern to make your own Cathedral Stars quilt under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog.
Today we do it again – it’s a double duty day. Oklahoma Backroads workshop starts this morning, and we’ve got an evening guild meeting tonight. If you are anywhere near Newnan, Georgia, come on by!
Last night’s stitch & unwind!
I watched The Devine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood while stitching away on some more string blocks. Perfection!
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Vintage basket quilt found in Kentucky.
The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds.
The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too.
The people that love you, simply for being you.
The once-in-a-lifetime kind of people.
Thanks for being those kind of people for me
Have a great Monday, everyone!
