October Whatnots......

OMG.....we had a crowd in the classroom area today!  Most of you reading this know what size of an area that is.  Well.....we squeezed about 20 happy folks in there this morning to see Sharon's tips and hints to make the second Whatnots quilt.  You can kind of see it on the design wall off to the left....it's the Idaho Lily. Sorry....I forgot to get a good picture before she took it home to finish it.  Isn't it super!?!  Sharon had some wonderful tips to share today to help these folks with this next project.  I had emailed and asked them to bring show and tell from last month's project.  A couple of them forget, but here are pictures of finished, or mostly finished quilts from the first month.  One even has its label on!  It has been a really fun adventure so far.  This group is full, but we'll be doing Whatnots 2 in March ~ another 6 month adventure!

Right now, Diane is teaching her Beginning Quilting class.  They are at the border stage and these gals have just excelled in their workmanship!  It's so fun to see them *catch the bug* and want to do more and more.

What else has been happening?  Well, I just got two small projects back from Tracey who worked her magic and made them look fabulous.  Going to take them home and put some binding on before I show you though.  Yesterday, we got some of the Fall release Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  We're getting ready to have a *re-do* of some of the fabric racks to make room for all of the new stuff that's coming in.  Okay....I'm needed at the counter, so I'll go back to work!
