I got home Sunday from a wonderful long weekend in Morgan City, LA. On Friday I taught a workshop based on this pattern - printed in 1986. I made 3 of these quilts back in the late '80's and early '90's. It's a pattern called "Momoe's Star".
It's a cross between Grandmother's Flower Garden and Cathedral Windows.
I met some new friends - always the best part :).
My students came well prepared (and were happy not to have to drag their machines to this workshop). We learned two basic skill builders - hand applique and hand quilting.
They were hard at work...
and they all went home with several finished blocks.
This project is totally hand done, portable a great quilt as you go project. Thanks for lunch Sheryl, it was a wonderful day.
On Saturday, I was the guest speaker for the quarterly meeting for GSQA. My lecture/trunk show is called "Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Taken".
A new friend, Carole, took some pictures during the program.
The quilts tell the story of my journey.
See how much my hand is helping??? :)
This last one is a little blurry, but I'm explaining some of the finer points in my Going Home quilt.
What a wonderful time. Thank you Sew Happy Quilters Guild for making me feel so welcome.
Have a great day,
