Workshop with Devine Quilters

Devine - Pieces and PatchesOn Saturday, Sept. 12, I taught a workshop for the Devine Quilters of Columbia, SC. The venue was Pieces and Patches quilt shop in Lexington. What a welcoming store with a comfortable, brightly lit classroom and varied collection of fabrics! The shelves boasted SC team prints, Christmas, blenders, patriotic, batiks, juvenile, prints in modern colorways, and some reproductions.

Donna, the workshop coordinator, selected “Get the Point?” designed by Carrie Nelson for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, vol. 3.  Since I teach my own construction method using an Easy Angle triangle ruler, quilters may use pre-cut 2 1/2″ wide strips (Jelly Rolls). Participants made great progress as you can see from the photos below.

The classroom’s design wall, situated behind Mike, served to show several layout options.

I hope the quilters each bring sample blocks to show at tonight’s meeting (7 p.m. Shandon Presbyterian, Columbia, SC), and I can’t wait to see pictures of the finished quilt tops.
