Old Gold Class!

Today was our final class for the Old Gold Quilt made out of a Jelly Roll and a Layer Cake!  We had a lot of fun!  You can see the finished quilt in the background of the first picture.  Judy and Tracy were diligently working away at getting their quilt pieces cut and ready to sew!

The pattern called for two blocks to be made into Log Cabin blocks but we didn't like how they looked so Rita and Judy both designed their own blocks!  I love how they look and the fact that they now both have quilt blocks that are completely different from everyone else's!

Joyce, Molly & Tracy were busy setting up the layout for Molly's quilt.  The quilt is so beautiful!  See the big quilt on the wall in the background?  Check out the detail of the quilting (YES, it's a quilt that I quilted!)  You can find close up pictures here.

Rita was busy sewing while the girls were busy with Molly's quilt!

Here's Judy's blocks that she designed for her quilt!  It still amazes me how different Judy's and Rita's blocks are!  Both used 3 - 2 1/2" strips of fabric and sewed the together exactly the same way BUT they cut their blocks differently and look they each got totally different looking blocks!!

Tonight out my night with all the grandchildren (well 3 out of the 4 of them) and then tomorrow we are off to visit our parents to celebrate mom's 90th birthday!!!  

Happy Quilting!!
