Positive/Negative at Shiisa Quilts

After class Thursday night, Jan and I joined a group for dinner at Pat and Bill Verhagen's house. Pat made some awesome salmon in her backyard smoker as well as salad, Brussel sprouts and big dishes of ice cream for dessert -- espresso chip!

We're obviously having a pretty good time. At left: Pat, Marion, Richard, Bill and Janet. Below, Pat shows off her newly folded and shelved fabric!

Then on Friday morning, another workshop at Shiisa Quilts:

Snuck this picture when Elspeth wandered off to look at threads....

Alice with her black and white; she changed up her sashings and borders to give a different look to the project.

We had some great fabric combos in class -- here are some purples...

Some nice oranges and reds.......

Pinks -- don't you love that funky border of Karen's?

And another red/orange color scheme, this time with poppies -- Susan said these fabrics were way out of the ordinary for her, but she loved them! We got to know each other a bit better as she was kind enough to drop me back to the Indianapolis airport on her way home. Part of the fun of travelling is getting to meet and know other quilters and learn about how they found their way to the fabrics and fun that we enjoy so much.

Two quick hops from Indianapolis to Pittsburgh takes me to my next stop: the Bernina Store & Sew Much More in Boardman OH where I'll be teaching my two day Fluff & Stuff class. Joyce and Tom will be getting to sleep late after picking me up in Pittsburgh at 10:30 pm, but it's just another day in the lives of shop owners for them.....busy!
