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 (www.thatperfectstitch.com ), 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!
