Such glorious weather for our Saturday class that Barbara felt obliged to take a quick pic as we were unpacking the cars
Once everything was unpacked and set up we had a great day persuading everyone to make speedy four patch blocks and then play with various simple techniques to frame the blocks. Tea, coffee, biscuits and cake were featured as fabric was neatly cut into strips, triangles and “new” blocks emerged. Partial seams, Log Cabin and Courthouse Steps, Twist & Turn and Mighty Mitres (!) were demonstrated and admired, and we suspect there will be several bags, table runners, wallhangings and quick quilts made with the stacks of blocks framed in class.
Some terrific homework completed from previous classes got an airing at lunchtime –

We think we can safely say that a good time was had by all. Time to pack everything away and start on the next round of preparation and procrastination ………………
