Last saturday I had a great day at a workshop with my guild! What a great day! It can be a little nerve wracking doing a workshop for people who know me so well, warts and all! But it was great! We had one “visitor” from another guild and I was so proud to see how welcoming my guild was to this quilter.
The workshop was my “Tripping through my Stash” pattern, my version of trip around the world.
I love, love, love teaching this block! It’s such a great exercise in color and value. And a great way to use what you have in your stash! People are always surprised by what they can put in this block and have it look GREAT! Am I saying great too much?
I took photos of all the blocks by themselves and then we put them all together to prove that anything goes! Aren’t they fabulous? ( that’s better than “great” btw)
Take a look at what everyone accomplished:
And here they are all together, with a few half blocks that I didn’t want to leave out!
Everyone made at least two blocks during the workshop and two quilters went home and made another one before bedtime! These are big blocks, 16″, so a quilt comes together fast and it’s all from fabric you already own! How great is that!
