My First Class is Over

Tonight was the last night of my the first crazy quilt course I have taught.  During the course of the three weeks, I went from being nervous to being very sad to see it end.  It was so nice to have some ladies to crazy quilt and share things with!  As you can see from the photos, they were intent on stitching!  Tonight we learned about motifs for the blocks and they all dyed a piece of lace for their block, had some fun with buttons and did a bit of silk ribbon embroidery.  The spider web rose was a big hit - something so easy can look so good!

Here are Pat and Ramona busy stitching on their blocks tonight.  As you can see, we had the books and the beads and all the goodies spread out around us!  Typical crazy quilters!  I hope that my students will continue in their crazy quilt journey and that they enjoyed the class as much as I did. 

Tip for the day:  Ramona shared with me that beads and fabric are very inexpensive in Mexico, so on your next vacation south... go shopping!
