Fun Times in Missouri

This past week I have been a guest of my long time quilting friend Pam D. On Monday I presented my “Cutting Up” lecture to her guild in Lee’s Summit, MO. And on Tuesday seven guild members made blocks in my workshop, “Fun with Fat Quarters.”

Would you like to see pictures?

Heather’s blocks from 1930’s repro prints will make a special welcome quilt for a new baby.


Pam’s lovely lavender fabrics will herald spring as a table topper.

Edwina plans to make several more blocks for a Quilt of Valor.

Great fun was had by all participants as they learned an efficient way to cut and sew fat quarters!

On Wednesday Pam drove her daughter and me to Hamilton, MO, home of Missouri Star Quilt Company. We did not see Jenny Doan, of you tube tutorial fame, but we did shop in about eight fabric venues housed in refurbished store fronts.

Of course I purchased some yardage and several packaged pre-cuts as souvenirs!

  1. Thanks for sharing this trip with us, and last Pic. quilt on back wall is called? ? Looks like (blue or gray shadow box).

  2. Love your students’ blocks. And especially Edwina’s block since that is my middle name, thus the “Ed”, and she was making it for QOV, my favorite group! If you read this, Edwina, let’s text!
