String Spider Webs on a Galway Afternoon!

Isn't Ann cute?!  I sure had a good time meeting her!  She sat in her corner and sewed herself away in her happy place!  I love that we Quilters have this in common.  The love of fabric, of color, of creativity, of the whole process of cutting, piecing, pressing, trimming, assembling, quilting and binding….it’s our life blood!

Our class was a bit smaller –we had 10 ladies I think, and that gave us a chance to chat and get to know one another in a very relaxed non-hurried atmosphere.

You know that string quilts are my favorite of all, and it was really fun sharing my addiction with a whole new group of international quilters!

Speaking of International Quilters..look who I ran into down by the Wicked Thimble Pub:

Take a good look at our Festival Leprechaun….his vest is patchwork!

There is just a tiny slide show below but these are going to be some STUNNING quilts when they are done!

If the slide show doesn’t play on your mobile device, click the image below to be taken directly to the photo album.
Enjoy!  And then go start that string quilting project you’ve always wanted to try ---The pattern for String Spider Web is under the tree patterns tab at the top of the blog.
