CA Sit & Stitch…Soooo much fun!

Well….I hope you all are up to your ears in blocks that you have to get done to keep up!…It is so fun to be busy and look forward to spending time with your machine…even if you have only 15 mins here and there….it all adds up when doing these triangle blocks and of course the Moda Blockhead blocks too!

I have returned from California after a rough start…plane was delayed a whole day…so my Saturday class turned into a Sunday class…then it was 3 more classes on Monday & Tuesday and then home quickly to spend some time with Nick to celebrate our 19th Anniversary…but here is a recap of my trip…hope you are inspired!!

Sunday…Well I didn’t have the full class that I was supposed to have on Saturday but I am happy for the 5 that could make it…This class was on “big stitch” quilting….This class was Barbs idea…she came in one day and showed a bunch of quilts and I said they would make awesome hand quilted quilts….I told her to see if she could find a used quilting frame and she could bring it in and I’d show her how to get started…

We basted the quilt in class…its an American flag for her son’s classroom….then we learned the big-hand quilting stitch on our large feathered wreaths or another project if they had one…and Barb got started on her quilt frame doing 3″semi circles piled on top of each other…not quite clam shells but close…can your see them on the edge of the frame?

 

Then a bunch of full classes on Monday and Tuesday’s…I sure do have fun with these girls…

Julie showed her finished Magic of Christmas quilt!!! I’m bringing it home for photography for our book…

 

Do you remember Sylvia???? The one who I made her redo a whole block my way in a previous Sit & Stitch?

She came back!  And brought her friend Shari…Here she is with a new  finished top called Old Dirt Road…this features my Little Gatherings II line of fabrics…

She pieced her Blockhead #5 block in class…

Here’s Shari making homespun Winnebago Waves quilt!!!

 

Then Shirley was working on her~My Crazy Life…only has 4 more to stitch and she can put the top together… Here is Snowflake Catcher…started in class…Kristine and Terry were both making this…

Kim is working on Lisa’s Flower Garden…

Elaine is working on Triangle Gatherings… Go back to the January posts if your interested in learning about Triangle Gatherings…

New class coming to PG CA…Yoko Saito design, in her newest book Scrap Valley…Tina will be teaching this!!!

Liz and her Triangle Gathering blocks-did you also notice the quilt in the background!!! Yes that’s MaryLou’s finished Clara’s Stars…

About half of the girls had show & share…so it was a lot of fun to see them getting their projects completd.  I am very proud of this women and what they are accomplishing!!!

    Do you carry thread cases like a few of the women in the pictures have? If not – do you know what kind they are.

    So many wonderful projects, but I have to say that Magic of Christmas really made me sit up and take notice! Love it!
