Star Struck in Little Rock!

Yesterday’s workshop was a load of fun! The day started with the guild business meeting and my lecture ----and then we got BUSY. Tables were moved and chairs arranged and machines unloaded and everything plugged in --- and in between that and the start of class we managed to eat a bite of lunch for the energy we’d need to get us through the afternoon!

We met at a library, with a great conference room for our use. I love libraries! I need to remember today to get a picture of the beautiful fountain that is right outside our room...too much time, not enough for all the pictures I want to take!

I love organized preparedness! Doesn’t this just make you want to flip through and look at each individual strip?

This too! Cut and stored and all ready to go!

More strip and square readiness!

Take a look at all we got to – we had a great half day class, and don’t let the half day part fool ya – it was a 4 hours of pedal to the metal chain-piece-a-thon!

And today we do it all over again with a My Blue Heaven Workshop!


  1. you must be at the River Market area if you are at the library I am thinking of that the Little Rock guild meets at. It is a pretty area. Hope you are able to get outside and take a walk - it is pretty there.

  2. The library is a fine place for a quilt workshop!

  3. Great slideshow -- I am aching with fabric lust!

  4. Great looking stars!

  5. Ohhhhh! Wonderful! Makes me want to sew today! If I did not have to work, what I could do! :)

  6. OH--I have been collecting reproductions Confederate blues, browns, and neutrals for a star quilt and this might be just the star quilt for me--is this pattern available yet? :-) you sure have a knack for inspiring me! AND those pics of the so organized pieces....well, THAT I am jealous about! :-) I think I should spend the day in my room!

    1. well, silly me--I found the FREE pattern! and I told myself to stay away from thousands of teeny pieces quilts for a little while! LOL

  7. From totally scrappy to totally planned, there are some wonderful quilts happening here. I am partial to the blue/brown and to that purple batiky thing, and the R/W/B and ...I'd better stop.
    Hey, I hadn't noticed when you posted the group shots before, but isn't that your hexie project on the table under the books? Nice!

    Great pictures. I love seeing the machines they use and some of the notions. It tends to give me ideas!

  9. Looks like everyone was having a great time! Those strips are pretty impressive!!

  10. Looks like a great time and a great bunch of ladies! I'm down in Houston and had planned to attend since this is spring break but sadly had to cancel a couple of weeks ago. I've been so looking forward to seeing these slides. I'm sewing along with you!!

    What fun! Wish I was there! But I got one of your books, and ordering another so I'll be doing some more as soon as I finish my RRCB! BT

  12. Yummy strips! I made this quilt for my nephew's 21st birthday last year.
