I've spent a fun 2 days with the Santa Rosa Quilters Guild teaching a Pineapple Nine Patch class. This was a super talented group of quilters and they did a great job learning a new technique and using new tools.
As with all groups there was lots of chatting and laughing along with sewing.
They helped each other press blocks and sometimes to un-sew.
They shared fabrics and ideas.
They made some wonderful food and we ate very well for 2 days.
They cut and cut and cut and really achieved a lot.
They encouraged each other and oohed and aahed over each others progress.
They went home Friday night and raided their stashed to bring back more fabric on Saturday.
At the end we put up all the blocks and created a beautiful collage.
I think they were all inspired to see what beauty was hiding in their efforts and they got a glimpse of the finished quilt. I hope to be able to share pictures soon of finished quilts so keep sewing!!
