Great Workshop!!

Wow, I have much to share! Saturday I joined Robin and Julie at a workshop with Sujata Shah for her Rail Fence quilt which is on the cover of her book, Cultural Fusion, that came out in December.  Sujata’s hosting a quilt-a-long for the rail fence quilt so I might have to jump in now that I have 5 blocks made 😉  Sujata is a wonderful teacher and her energy is amazing.  If you get a chance, I highly recommend taking a workshop with Sujata.

Rail Fence BlocksI can’t wait to make more blocks so I can play with different layouts.  It will also be fun choosing additional pairs of fabrics.  FUN!!  Sujata graciously agreed to pictures 🙂

SujataJulie brought her quilt made with some of my liberated churn dash blocks…fun!

JulieSince I posted last, the blocks for Crop Circles are all  sewn together, Woohoo!!

Crop Circles TopI ordered some fabric for the back so I’ll be putting this one on Sophie for quilting soon.  The next First Sat group, The Fox Travels the Roman Road, started in August and I’ve gotten the main block completed.  It’s not an easy block but I like it.

  1. You’ve been busy! Your Crop Circles top is gorgeous – the circles really show up nicely. Thanks again for the QF block tutorial. It was a hard block but your guide made it much easier to understand the construction than the instructions we were given.

  2. Oh I love your crop circles! It is going to be a gorgeous quilt! Your design wall is looking fabulous with all sorts of fancy! Thank you for driving out there, I had a great time laughing with you all!

  3. Lucky gals…you and Julie! Looks like a good time was had by all.

    My fav of all shown are still hose Broken Dishes blocks I see every once in awhile with an RSC post. I hadn’t seen Crop Circles but that looks fantastic too. I think I’m attracted to your shirts!!

  4. You look like you are enjoying yourself and the results show that you learned lots. I love your Crop Circles blocks. That is going to be awesome when you’ve finished quilting it.
