Jane and Diane report: “15 amazing quilters attended this past Saturday-Sew which resulted in 15 awesome bags. We stopped briefly for lunch and then back to the project. It was great going back in time …this was a project Dot Woods taught us years ago. Sometimes old projects are important to share with new people in the Guild.”
Flavin Glover did not disappoint in her classes at Coastal Quilters this month. These classes have been in the planning for many months and on January 12 and 13 the days arrived! Flavin shared her quilts and the techniques for creating her designs. Using grids and a little coloring time, the patterns emerged. Starting from a tiny 1″ or 1 1/4″ square and adding strip by strip the log cabin designs developed into little houses, villages and seaside cottages. We are all grateful to Ginger and Yvonne for arranging great lunches so we could keep at our work after a brief break to eat and enjoy the camaraderie of our quilting friends.
Some comments from the classes:
“The blocks came together much more quickly than I could have imagined!”
“Great class, loved all her tips and beautiful quilts ! Enjoyed her sense of humor and the getting to know you segment at the end.”
“Can’t wait to see how my quilt turns out”
Nationally known quilt designer and teacher, Flavin Glover was our guest at the Guild’s January monthly meeting. Flavin brought many of her innovative log cabin designs and geometric patchworks to share, and amid lots of oos and ahs she held up quilt after quilt. Leaving the meeting we all looked forward to the classes to be held on Friday and Saturday (January 12 & 13) with Flavin. (class pictures to be posted soon!)
We are all excited about tonight’s monthly meeting – the long awaited and eagerly anticipated Flavin Glover trunk show! And Friday and Saturday will be classes for members. (pre-registration required) it will be a great meeting. See you there!
