Working in Cali

I am working my butt off in CA…Taught a couple of classes…and now we are working on our booth for the Road to California Show…Jan-18-22 in Ontario CA.

But I wanted to take a sec and tell you about some of the cool things we did in Sit & Sew…

First, I want to apologize for not taking pics of Thursday’s get together but..here are some pics from Friday..

Charlotte with a wool-small pieced project from my book…Nine Patch Gatherings

Charlotte also was stitching Garden Blooms tablemat.

Teri finished her project from our Christmas Event that was a free pattern…it is now available as a kit and pattern…Snowflake Catcher.

Charlotte again with Tree Trimming Party…a Farmhouse Threads pattern and we kitted it at Primitive Gatherings. Sorry, the kit is no longer available…

Caren has finished Grateful…is the pumpkin project..

Beth was working on Grateful as well…she learned my fast and easy method of crossing over the stems…

Kathy’s class project Postage Due was completed and I helped her put her borders on…..isn’t this just out of this world…Tina teaches this class at our store in Murrieta!!

Patsy is an awesome hand appliqué-er who just started her first wool project…I hope she loves it because she has a beautiful blanket-stitch.Look at how Happy Betty is that her Among Friends is finished…I was like….aren’t you glad you are finished??-she said she loved making it!!!


Kim is working on Lisa’s Flower Garden…one of my favorite patterns..

Here is a pic of the whole quilt…

Linda…was working on some hexi flowers that we blanket stitched down to her block and then she learned colonial knots as well…I am not familiar with this pattern so I have no info on this one…Thank you ladies…I had a blast and can’t wait to see you when I return in March 2018!  I hope you all liked our little show and share from our get together!!!

    I learned so much with Lisa—how to thread a needle and knot a thread, using Doug Keri’s ruler for square attached to another and sewn in a triangle, what to do with fabric I have had for a long time, blanket stitch. All amazing. Thx to you, Lisa. Love ya girl, Barb

    Thanks for sharing the fun with us, Lisa. While California is closer than Wisconsin for me, it’s still 1400 miles away. One of these days I will join in the fun!

    Lisa, loved, loved, loved your pics. So interesting to see that the camaraderie of quilters is the same in Cali as in Ohio. I almost felt as if that empty chair were mine, and that I had just gone over to the iron for a minute. So inspiring to see the work on many so projects in all stages. Please do more of these posts as the opportunity arises.

    WOW a lot of great projects on Friday!!! Having been there Thursday seeing Betty working on her quilt I’ll have to say Betty’s “Among Friends” quilt is LOVELY with the top finished; great job Betty!!! I had a great time at Thursday’s class and as always learned something new. Thanks for coming to CA to teach Lisa, your creativity is always an inspiration to me. Oh and Thanks again for all the tips for my Spring Crazy Table Mat and ideas for setting the 2017 HST’s, I’m looking forward to seeing yours.

    This was such a lovely post. I enjoyed the photos of the quilts as well as the story. There were some real beauties being worked on in your classes. Among Friends is amazing and I also liked the flower garden one.
