Jan, here it is! This is my first ribbon for a quilt (I’ve won 2 for blocks)…I was so excited! I was also very pleased with how it turned out since in class I liked most everyone’s colors better than my own! Thanks for a great class!   Deb Lockwood

Hi Jan, I am very excited to show you a picture of the top finished of the Lone Star Quilt I started in Boca Raton with you. I had e-mailed you about how to put it together, and I want to thank you for getting back to me.  I found the information I needed and finished it, but decided that it needed a border. 

It was difficult working with the octagonal shape, but I finally got it.  The border made all the difference.  I’m enclosing a picture for you to see.  I’m going to have Linda Wilson who was at the workshop and is a long arm quilter quilt it as I really don’t know what to do with the quilting part. Thanks a million.  I’ve committed to my daughter that I’ll make her a star quilt also.  I’m hooked!   Blessings, and thanks again,  Marlys Hasey Cordes

April 20-23 was a lovely time in Boca Raton. The weather was unseasonably dry and pleasant. I arrived on Monday, late in the afternoon. It was great fun to meet members of the Gold Coast Quilt Guild who were enthusiastic hostesses and participants in the Summer Salsa two-day workshop. Here are a few pictures from the workshop.

Monterey Peninsula Quilters

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

The first few days of November I traveled to the Monterey-Pacific Grove, California area. The Monterey Peninsula Quilt Guild members joined me for a multi-day Quick Star workshop and designed different stars, all of them cut with either the 6 1/2″ or 3″ diamond rulers. We had such a great time! Here are a few photos from the workshop.
