A Super Fun Day--Post #2

Book Binding Class
The group, Project Linus served us lunch. It was a cold day and the menu was a baked  potato with toppings, a soft drink and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. The only compliant about lunch this year was that the potatoes were too large! (Last year, we had a salad bar and we ran out of most everything but lettuce.)

The afternoon classes of Saturday Workshops were a good mix of activities too. Debby taught a "Single Section Book Binding" class. How cool would it be to produce your own journal?

Needle holder class
Lynn S. taught the cutest wool needle holder class. She called the project, "Sweet Keep." She brought ribbons, wool thread, lots of wool pieces for cover choices. . .well, it was amazing! You can find her patterns here:

Some of supplies used

This photo gives you an idea of the scope of the "parts" for the project! Also, I loved the finger pincushion and wanted to share it with you!

Deciding on the layout
Donna and Geneva worked on a strip quilt in "Finish It Up" using a technique that they learned in a previous Saturday Workshop!

Advanced Panels class

Sue (standing the in photo) makes the most amazing quilts from panels. She agreed to share some tips about working with panels.

Travel container for blocks
Stephanie's participants made this portable block board and a roll up style of block board that could double as a design wall. Her roll up block carrier reminded me of a smaller version of a yoga mat. Her projects were so clever!

In the next and last post about Saturday Workshops, I'll share the all day classes!
