Quilty Monday

Yesterday was an all quilt day. Cheryl, Christine, Jane and I went over to Sujata's house to play. These are Sujata's blocks we were using as our inspiration. Sujata has 2 blogs, The Root Connection and Basket Full Of Scraps go check them out you will love her work.
It was like being in a store.

Everything was so nicely displayed.


How could you not be inspired?

Sujata was very generous with her stash and we really appreciated it.


We cut strips and promptly went to work.


It did not take long for the beautifully displayed fabric to look like this.


Jane and Christine at work....this is not a blurry picture of Christine, she always moves at that pace!
When the blocks are together I will post some pictures.


Last night was also our Penn Oaks Guild meeting. Our speaker was Jackie Gauker who dyes wool and also designs patterns. She is a very funny lady and had all of us laughing our heads off.






There is just something so nice about wool. Her color selections were beautiful, even some pinks, lime greens and blues that were tempting.


This is a quilt that combines cotton and wool.
If you are interested in finding out more you can contact Jackie Gauker at 610-944-8925 or thequiltpalette@aol.com. She also does custom dyeing, workshops and has a lot of cool kits.
