Wonky log cabin class

I just taught a Wonky Log Cabin quilt class at a student's house (a wonderful way to teach). Here's the vital sewing notion she put out -- a bowl of colorful m&ms, right in front of me!

She also fixed us a delicious and colorful lunch, including this salsa and fruit. Then all stops were pulled out with red velvet cupcakes with whipped cream (brought over by a quilting neighbor) and some cookie bars that were to die for.

We did get some sewing done in between eating, and here's hostess-with-the-mostess, Jan, auditioning some options for her quilt's center block. She was going to work on more options after class, so I'm eager to see what she settles on. Her fabric is in fabulous colors from the Moda Grunge collection. (My camera did weird things to the second photo.)

Beth, meanwhile, took off in a totally different direction. She went horizontal and based her quilt on a focus fabric from which she cut out these dramatic dragons.

I loved teaching this way. I didn't have to clean my own house, I was served lunch, and I loved the casual atmosphere of just having a few students. Thanks Jan and Beth and cupcake neighbor!

Have a colorful day

Sounds like a great day, and I love the samples! Since I have my stash spread out all over the back of the house, I may have to give this a try...
