Sewing with Barbara and Jessi (and Isaac)

We had such a fun weekend at the Panguitch Quilt Walk!!!  Jessi, Barbara and I all took a class together on Thursday afternoon, and it was just so wonderful to be able to sew with 3 generations all laughing together.  It truly is a dream come true for me, and I am so glad that Jessi gets to share this love with Barbara and I.   It is just moments of bonding and lots of memories made.   I wish I would have gotten a picture of the three of us together, but I barely remembered to snap this one at the end of class.   I just get so in the zone of sewing, tee hee hee.  

Jessi and I finished 4 Log Cabin Blocks and 4 Star Blocks (2 each) for the first part of class.   We then turned our focus to some serious chain piecing and have the remaining 28 Log Cabin Blocks over half way finished.    So hopefully it won't be long before we can share this all finished up :)   And speaking of that, thanks for all of your comments on the PDF vs Quilt Along post.    The general consensus was a PDF with multiple size options now, and a Quilt Along more towards the fall when life slows down.   So I will start working on the PDF and release it with the finished quilt ;)

After the class we took, I taught 3 more classes.  I was hopeful that Jessi would sew in the back of my class and continue to work on the log cabins, but quickly realized that wasn't going to happen.   You see, our classroom also doubled as a Beginning Medical Class at the High School, so there were beds in the back of the room, and one even had a friend in it :)   Jessi named him Prince Isaac the Third and he was super kind to display my quilts as there was no where to hang them.   Jessi also took full advantage of the empty bed taking lots of cat naps, watching movies, and reading her book.  She just loved it and all of the gals in my class got a kick out of it.  Ahh those teen years when you can just be perfectly content chilling all day ;)  

And speaking of my classes, they went wonderful as well!!!  I always love teaching and it was so nice to get together with friends that I missed seeing last year.    I will share of my students work in another post soon.   Just wanted to pop in and say it was a wonderful weekend, and it is great to be back home.  

How about you??   Any planned retreats in your upcoming future??

Pin It!
