I started prepping the photos for this post at 5.30am, having woken at 5.16………..brain churning, images rolling in my head, fingers itching to cut and sew, but as my roomies were still in the land of nod, decided cropping pics and getting this post out a better option!
Our classes for the weekend are at Cottage Qultworks, the most delightful shop – more on that tomorrow – and seeing this sign as we entered the premises
Jean started the day with an introduction, and then Margaret gave a talk which totally sang with me, leaving me feeling so fired up and inspired (an overused but totally appropriate word!), and ready to get to it!!
After going through all my pics I’m a little overwhelmed, and – agog and aghast!! – a little short on words!! So I might just let the photos do the talking if that’s alright with you.
There were goody bags for each
I’ll preface the next images by saying there are 23 of us, including The Best Organisers, Jean (who you’ll find more readily and actively on Instagram!!) and Lizzie, and our wonderful teacher, Margaret Sampson George, or MSG as she’s affectionately referred to! So you will understand that attributions will be few and far between as my overloaded brain can’t remember “which belonga who”! And apologies if I get it wrong!!
I think this is Jenny’s and she’s working it on an old Marcella quilt – I love this idea!…..
Cardygirl brought (and bought!) and suitcase ful of fabrics to play with….
Rae showed me how she’s using my Elwood Rose template, sewing only the “rose” part, to create these gorgeous flowers which will be appliquéd onto a linen background…..
We then had a magnificent Show and Tell, which, unfortunately, I can’t show you, but we did so appreciate it!
It finished up with MSG’s Very First Quilt, some 35 years old!
That’s been a long post, I know, and thank you for wading through it all. There’s more to come today I’m sure, but as my roomies have woken, showered, dressed and now gone down to breakfast, I’d better get my skates on and join them…….I don’t want to be left behind and miss out on today’s fun!!
