Someone somewhere chose the right class for the right day!
I had several ladies for ALL classes Thursday, Friday & Saturday – that’s THREE BIG QUILTS started in one weekend….oy!
Can you imagine the cutting! My hats off to them…..and I can understand why by the third day we were all moving just a bit slower….LOL!!
Yesterday was just a sew at your own pace day ----we made 9 patches in the morning. We did half square triangles and started putting blocks together by afternoon…no rush, no worries…just sew up that fabric! The blocks were turning out so good in all the various color ways they chose to be working with.
I don’t know about you --- but I love seeing students get all comfortable within their own corners of organized chaos! Do you see all the various 9 patch parts just waiting to be mixed, matched, and assembeled on this table? Whooowhooo! This makes me want to sit down and sew for myself!
Yes – they came with scraps all neatly organized, but within a very short span of time we had strip explosions:
Oh goodness! I think even those BIG HONKING HUGE SCISSORS would get lost in these piles!
Uhuh! Will she be able to fit all this back into that bag? They’ve FLUFFED to twice their original size!
Sometimes simple blocks are just the ticket after two previous days of power sewing and late night girlfriend time ---and we’ve got lots to show for our day yesterday!
Today? Another Smith Mountain Morning Workshop!
