This week I was so lucky to be able to go visit my "old" guild back in Delaware. While I was living there, I was so thankful to be part of this great group and have so missed the "Sit & Sew" time together. I'm close enough here in Virginia that I will be making the trip occasionally for special events or maybe just because!! Monday night was the guild meeting and the speaker was Sheila Karel. She is the quilt designer of the Star Trellis quilt I just completed. (She has patterns ready for sale, for those that asked!) She shared many of her beautiful quilts and her love of all things "crumbs!" I don't know why I didn't take any pictures that night!!
The next day, Sheila taught a workshop for the "Sit & Sew" day. It's her pattern called Courthouse Steps Bargello. This pattern is also available for sale from Sheila.
Here are my blocks...
The girls are hard at work assembling blocks...Hi Sheila and Lynn!
You can see Pat's row of blocks coming together there on her table...Hi Pat!! :)
Looks like Jeanne has row coming together too...
Here is one of each of the ladies' blocks...you can really see the design coming together. Even though all the fabrics and colors are different, it looks great!
I think these were Sue's...she had quite the productive day!
I don't remember who these blocks belong too...but I love the colors!
This is such a great picture with all the Sit & Sew gals...Sheila, our instructor for the day, is in the middle with her gold and black block. Everyone oooh'd and ahhh'd over her fabric/color choices...it's perfect for fall/halloween time!
Special thanks to Lisa for letting me stay at her house so that I was able to be part of such a fun day!
On the way home, I did make a stop at one of my favorite shops, Serendipity, and picked up a few treasures. Until now, I hadn't followed any of the Row by Row events going on, but I decided I liked this one enough, I had to have it. :)
