Quilt Among Friends

After a lecture and two workshops with the Bear Creek Quilters Guild in Keller, Texas I headed to Arlington, Texas and had the pleasure of teaching a workshop at the Quilt Among Friends quilt shop. They chose the Small Wonders workshop in which eight different quilts can be worked on!

Of course the shop had lots of great fabrics and the classroom space was perfect!



Besides the eight different quilts offered I also display and demo an additional twenty blocks they can try with the same techniques presented in the workshop.  Two different quilters arrived at the class with a quilt in mind they were going to make and changed their minds twice before deciding on one of the bonus blocks.  That’s one of the things I love about working with the 5″ squares, they are so versatile!

Here are pictures of some of the blocks completed this day:

This is Prairie Gems from my Amazing Nickel Quilt book.

Several quilters were working on Tillie’s Treasure from Nickel Quilts or The Big Book of Nickel Quilts.

Butterfly Waltz blocks, the quilt is in More Nickel Quilts or The Big Book of Nickel Quilts.

A great day was had by all and I look forward to seeing pictures of these finished quilts someday!

  1. I would love to take a class like that one. So many possibilities. I have your books and have always enjoyed looking through them for inspiration about what else I can make with charm packs that come my way. Thanks!

  2. It’s my pleasure to see your nice post, really interesting! I would love to have that class, glad to know about your success “Of course the shop had lots of great fabrics and the classroom space was perfect!”. Congratulations!

  3. Lovely! I have made many quilts from your patterns over the past 8 years. Currently I am making small wonder blocks starting with a 3.5 inch HST in a variety of red and cream fabrics. They are so cute and tiny. Thanks for writing wonderful patterns in clear terms.
