A Whole Lotta Delta Junction Show & Share!

It is so fun to come back to a place after 4 years and see what these gals have been up to since our last visit!

One of the workshops we gave was Bricks in the Barnyard from Scraps & Shirttais II  and some nice quilts came back in completed status to say hello!

This is one of those favorite workshops that just goes so slick. 

Students come with all of the rectangles and squares cut, as well as bringing strips along for making the half square triangles after an Easy Angle Ruler demo.

The braid broder is made from leftover strips and can be worked on as leaders & enders, growing in length while the blocks in the center are completed.

So much fun!

Here is another:




This one is Pam’s!


Star Gazing from Scraps & Shirttails was another finish!


And so was Love Shack!


Smoky Mountain Stars from the Free Patterns tab!

And I love what Rebecca did with the back:


Awesome back from orphans!


Wonky Wishes blocks from the Free Patterns tab set with cheddar sashings!


Dancing Maverick Stars!

Isn’t this fun? You can take just about ANY small block and set it in a dancing layout and I love the look!  This one is waiting for borders….it also belongs to Rebecca!


This is also a section of Pam’s Bowdacious from Adventures with Leaders & Enders.

She HAS been using it as her Leader & Ender project over the past couple of years and it is nearing completion.  Leader & Ender projects take their time to grow, but they are so worth it!

Thanks, Ladies – for bringing your wonderful creations to share during our lunch breaks!  I love seeing what you have created!

As this posts, I am most likely winding up a workshop and getting set up for this evening’s lecture with the Cabin Fever Quilters here in Fairbanks, Alaska!

Tomorrow morning’s post will include photos from our workshop day today!

Have a great evening, everyone!

    Those Alaskans are amazing. From the footwear (sandals or lack thereof) and shorts you would never guess you are WAY up there. And they sure can put together beautiful quilts! Lovely share!

  2. Gorgeous quilts!! Thanks so much for sharing. I was going to start Bowdacious but now Bricks in the Barnyard is calling.
    What to do??? You have so many beautiful patterns and everyone's is different but equally beautiful.

  3. Those are all such great quilts!! I bet it makes you happy to see all the scrappy goodness you inspired!

  4. I apologize if this duplicates, but this is my third try...
    Back on May 23, 2015 post "A Whole Lotta Delta Junction Show & Share!" There is a picture of a back made of orphan blocks. Can anyone tell me the name of the spinner-type block? I think I can figure out how to construct it, but I would like to know what to call it. Thank you.
