Allentown Crazy Quilters and Pictures from Idaho!

The Crazy Quilters Guild in Allentown, PA had two Nickel Quilt workshops, and in the first one I was too busy to even get my camera out.  Since I teach several different quilts in each workshop I have a lot to cover and this involves a lot of dashing around the room helping everyone. Who knew that the training I had as a waitress back in my high school days would come in so handy in my teaching?

In the Half Square Triangle and Four Patch workshop I did manage to take a few pictures before we started to pack up. This is a block from the Texas Two Step quilt that is in my Amazing Nickel Quilt book.

Blocks by two different quilters for the Jewel Box quilt that is found in my first book, Nickel Quilts. These gals chose Christmas fabrics like in the quilt I made. Will they have them done by Christmas?

Below are two blocks for the Sunny Lanes quilt that is also in the Nickel Quilts book.  This workshop participant chose a monochromatic color scheme and I think it’s great!  My quilt was very scrappy and used every color possible, one of my sample blocks is shown in the upper right of the picture.
