Class Last Saturday

The class last Saturday was a fun all-day class complete with lunch: the idea was either to work on something of your own that you wanted to get closer to completion, or to work on a pattern called Blueberry Pie:

in a color scheme of your own choice (and wouldn't this look gorgeous in more multicolor scrappy traditionals from stash). The designer who created it came over to visit with us for awhile and some Little Quilters also popped in to visit with us. I completed a few more star blocks for the Sweet Summer pattern I've been working on gradually via leaders and enders, using blues and grays from stash (which is challenging because as it happens I never have many blues in my collection), and also did two of the three BOM blocks for the next SSS (Second Saturday Sampler) day. The other Working on My Own person was making these pretty snowball blocks:


Here are pictures from various Show and Tells:








and here are the different colorways for the Blueberry Pie'rs:

Love the blues you're using. They're all making really great blocks...but the scrappy applique flower really got my attention...what a great idea! I am picking up so many ideas on blogs! Thanks so much for sharing.
Happy Easter. :)

I always love what you're doing, Karen. The various color schemes from the other Blueberry Piers are terrific!

What great photos and inspiring ideas! If I didn't have to go to work, I'd run right into my sewing room and start sewing! Thanks for the inspiration!

The Blueberry Pie quilt fabrics very much remind me of an old quilt we used to have when I was growing up. I don't use blue often, but someday I would like to recreate that old quilt.

Very nice photos of the show and tells, and those Blueberry Pie options look good enough to eat. Think I would have gone for the red variation:)

Oh what fun! I need a day to just sew. No cleaning, no running kids around, no cooking. Just sew, sew, sew!
