Stars Over Mid-Atlantic

Sunday, just as it became full dark and started to rain, I drove into the driveway home again in Beaufort NC. Five straight hours of driving on mostly two-lane country roads and those porch lights sure looked welcoming! This trip was to Hampton Roads, VA to teach at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. I went up last Tuesday, helped judge the Traditional Quilts category with Didi McElroy ( ), and then taught for three days.

All my classes were full. Foundation Piecing Fabulous Stars started the week with a bang. Most of the Perpetual Motion star blocks students are shown pinned up on the board (see picture above). Jeanette Henry (right) made a beautiful star in batiks that matched her own pink and brown clothing color scheme and Yvonne (below left) was so pleased when she finally got her black-n-white block together that she did a little victory dance. The class applauded!
