Last Thursday I attended Jo Morton’s lecture and trunk show about decorating with quilts at Fairfax QU. What beauties!
Saturday, I attended her Rhubarb Crisp workshop. It amazes me how little I get done at these things. I only made 4 sawtooth star blocks in 6 hours. I realize we took time to gather around the table, chat and eat lunch. Yes, it was fun and I learned a new way of making flying geese and Jo’s method of clipping seams for neater pressing. If you ever get a chance, I highly recommend you take one of her classes.

Being the obsessive person I am, I took every opportunity I could on Sunday and Monday to work on this project. I wanted something to show at her next lecture (Making Something New Look Olde) which was today at McLean QU. But guess what! I left the little flimsy I made – four star blocks with the flying geese sashing – at the meeting. I’m trying not to be too made at myself. A message has been sent out to the group and I hope I hear from someone soon. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of it. I’m sure you won’t mind a few photos from Jo’s trunk show instead.
Thanks to my friend, Suzie, for taking the trunk show photos. I was a lucky holder.
