This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of teaching my Walking Foot WOW! class with these 9 adventurous quilters up at Scruffy Quilts quilt shop! They all came with blank canvases (aka quilt sandwiches) and were ready to stitch up some beautiful masterpieces using their walking foot. This workshop is so much fun and provides loads of inspiration for quilters of all levels. We had a few relatively new quilters who were initially nervous about quilting their own quilt tops...but left feeling confident to tackle quilting their new quilt tops. There were several experienced quilters who were looking for new ideas, and left with a few new tricks to add to their quilter's toolbox. And of course, I always get new inspiration from everyone's creative takes on each of the designs, especially the occasional mistake that yields even more exciting designs!!
And check out some of their creations...

Following the class, I had to attend another engagement. I returned home to see Catherine set up in my studio putting the final stitches on her spectacular 9-patch sampler. We celebrated with a quick binding tutorial and by the end of the evening she had a quilted, bound and absolutely stunning wholecloth quilted sampler!

As I mentioned, I love seeing familiar faces, especially those who have taken other classes/workshops with me. Christine M took my Intriguing Interleaves class in November. She arrived early and proudly showed me her completed Interleave quilt started in my class...and even more exciting...a second quilt made after the class!! They both look absolutely amazing and were an amazing start to an all around fun day!!
