We came, we saw, we quilted!

What a week! I taught six different classes at Road to California, and now that it's over, I can’t believe how fast it went. I managed to take some pics in each class, and I thought it would be fun to share what we worked on!

We started the week with Vintage Windmill on Monday. I love teaching this class to newer quilters and people who haven’t done much with angles before. It's such a crowd-pleaser and everyone learns so much through the process. At the end of class, we all gathered our blocks together and laid them out on the floor. What an impressive bunch we had!

For the next two days, I worked with a split group making either Snowflake Lane or Flutterby Frolic. Having two full days, with the same gals, was quite relaxing because you can get into a great productive groove and really enjoy each other's company.

That night, I caught up with Jen Kingwell who’s become a really neat friend, and with a new friend Roxanne who owns a couple of shops in Southern California! I love how small the quilting world is and how much of a family it has become for those who travel a lot, often alone.

The next day, it was back to the classroom for Tully The Turtle and this busy group made some serious headway. I just loved seeing the different fabrics and bright “turtle shells” as they came together.

Friday was another split class with about half the group making Summer Succulents and the other half working on Fall Foliage.

Just look at these amazingly perfect stacks of leaf cuts! I told her this made my OCD heart so happy to see! Ha ha!

What a fun group and they all did soooo well!

Finally, Saturday was our Bespoke Stars class, and this one took the cake. First, we had two sisters from Monday's Vintage Windmill class, come to class with their Monday quilts all done! These gals are wiz kids for sure and so much fun to have In class through the years!

Just look at all they got done. So many amazing combinations and color schemes. What a great way to end the week! I made everyone promise to send pics of their finished quilts, because don’t you just want to see these all done now?!

I hope you enjoyed a peek into my classes this week. I’m flying home now and will be back in my sewing room to finish that scrap quilt I started last week 🙂

Happy Sunday everyone,
