Earling Circle and Spin class, pt 2


Yesterday was the Circle and Spin Quilt class in Earling. It was great fun. My sister Sharon was nice enough to host the class at her house. She and my mom worked on circle blocks, as well as three other ladies. We met all day til about 4 since it isn't as feasible to go up there 2 weeks in a row. They really got a lot done! Everyone brought a snack to share, so we had some goodies to keep us going. These are Sharon's blocks above.

The lighting wasn't the best, I guess, as some of the blocks look sort of washed out.

Here are Mom's blocks. She is making a new quilt for their bed.
Pat got these finished...hers will be bright and pretty...doncha love those stripes?

Rose chose blues, yellows and greens....
These are Noreen's blocks. Hers are more vibrant than this also.

Head on over to Heather's blog. She is hosting a Pay It Forward Giveaway. I don't usually do the pay it forwards because I don't think I will have time to get the things made and given to people. But this one is just hosting a giveaway, so I can handle that. She has some very cute Halloween fat quarters to giveaway, so stop by and check it out.

I never cease to be amazed at how a single pattern can look so different just with a change of fabric. great blocks.

The blocks look great all put together but they look difficult to make!

Your mom's quilt is really going to be pretty. Love the variety from one to the next on the rest of them.

Those blocks are amazing but seeing it in section make me belive that maybe (just maybe), I could do it...It looks so hard.

I love Sharon's and Grandma's both.

To the lady who said it looked hard: My mom (Jeanie) used to say that too, but look at her now.

Wow, everyone's blocks look so good. To me, that's the best part of taking a class - getting to see the same pattern done in so many different ways. And, that's a cool pattern too. Looks like they had a good teacher!
