Roll Roll Rolling in Huntsville, TX!

Since I have my laptop cord back….I spent time last evening going through the photos from Tuesday’s workshop in Huntsville and editing them down, getting ready to post.

It makes me smile to see such happy quilters showing off their blocks…I can hear their chatter and laughter in my mind as I see each lady, and I feel like I was really a part of this group, they took me right in!

Just look at these girls….aren’t they adorable?

Roll Roll Cotton Boll  from my book String Fling is a ton of fun, and a lot of work.  Many Many small pieces come together to make this quilt what it is – and oh, the fabrics you can use up in the process!

We started the day out by doing all the precision piecing first….leaving the string piecing for the afternoon when we were most likely to want to lay down and take a nap –hahaha  you don’t have to try has hard to be “perfect” with string piecing…it’s a lot more forgiving and easy going!

This is a one owner featherweight!  She’s had it since it was brand spanking new in 1966!

And no, the quilter on the left did NOT finish this in class!

But she got started, just to see if she liked one block…and like potato chips, she just couldn’t stop! LOL!  So, she chose another quilt out of String Fling, Pfeffernusse, and was working away on that while the rest of us were all Rolling our Cotton Bolls along…

  1. I'm from Texas and I'm always jealous when someone else is enjoying my state without me. Looks like y'all had fun. Did you get to eat Blue Bell ice cream or go on a tour of their place? Be safe coming home and come to Tampa, FL soon. Maybe? :)

  2. Great fun! I can hardly wait to receive my books.
