As soon as Meet the Teachers wrapped up, I quickly loaded my quilts and promotional information and headed down to Pleasanton to present my "Challenge Yourself!" lecture/trunk show for the Amador Valley Quilters. What an absolutely delightful group of quilters!! I attended their April quilt show and was very impressed by both the quantity and quality of quilts displayed (I was especially excited to see multiple quilt challenges included in the displays!) and their July meeting was just as impressive!
On Sunday, I taught Intriguing Interleaves and just loved everyone's enthusiasm! Not only were they an industrious group making great progress on their Interleave quilts...but they were super creative as well. By the afternoon, as most folks are nearing the halfway point, we take a break to discuss ideas for adapting this technique and/or adding personalization. Almost immediately, I could see several of the attendees planning out their second or third Interleave quilts and ways of adding their own unique design twist!!
Here are some pictures of their amazing progress from Sunday. As you can see--there were lots of exciting fabric and color combinations yielding some really striking in-progress Interleave quilts (along with a few finishes!!)

Many thanks to the Amador Valley Quilters for their warm hospitality and for being such a fabulously fun group of quilters!!
