Jamestown Landing in Jamestown, NY!

You’d never guess that this humble little fire station, looking all peaceful and serene on the outside – was hosting a wild bunch of 33 women with 33 machines, fabric, irons, paraphernalia and having a raging good time in Jamestown, NY!

And yes, that might look like MY Shamu, but that is Jean’s van – we drive the same one!

Quilters need big vehicles – I won’t trade my Shamu for ANYTHING!

But back inside this building – we had ample space upstairs for everyone AND all of their stuff, and room to move….

We were busy with the string blocks and the broken dishes units for Jamestown Landing!


Time to get our SCRAPPY on!

You can find the pattern for Jamestown Landing  from my book String Fling in  Quiltville’s Store!


We made string blocks..oh so many string blocks!


And TRIANGLES, Oh the triangles!


Doing the Triangle Twist – Go Faith, Go Faith!!

It wasn’t long until we could see how this all was to come together as we worked to build enough variety in these simple units to get the action going:


Carrie’s in green!


Elaine’s coming along in blacks!


Show us how it’s done, ladies!


Hold them high and be proud!

See how huge this room was?

Be Fun!  Be Silly!  Be Quilty! Be Photo-Bombed!

Today on deck we have Sister’s Choice and I just know it’s going to be as much of a rocking good time as Jamestown Landing was.  How could it not be?

Bring it on!

  6. Such pretty blocks... I'll have to take another look at that quilt! I think it needs to go on my "to do" list.

    Hey, what's that long empty table in the middle? My friends and I could have been there!

  7. Looks like fun, fun, fun! I know how much fun it is to be in class with you, Bonnie. I'd love to make this quilt. Its "on the list."
