Kindergarten Quilt Class
Yesterday was the last meeting of the Great Granny Squares Class with Tamra at the Stitchin' Post. It is called the Great Granny Square because the center block is the baby, then the parents, grandparents and great grandparents!!! Each block is so satisfying to make...except I was having a Labrador Retriever Day...which meant it took me all morning to finish one block until Mark came to the rescue! He was another student in the class who was a retired Kindergarten teacher...which meant, he had the patience and ability to explain his way of constructing the block so my 5 year old brain could understand and whip them together a little bit faster, lol...in the afternoon I finished 3 more blocks!!! I needed a feel good moment and bought myself an elephant pincushion...which made me smile every time I looked at it!
Here is Tamra our instructor's blocks...aren't they beautiful!
You can use scraps...jelly roll...or whatever you want!
Mark fussy cut some of his squares for a really fun block
and the black background is fabulous!
This quilt is such a fun one to make and is designed by
Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet
The other highlight of the day was when
Terri stopped by with her Sue Spargo thread bag!
What a fabulous creation!
...and the thread....
...and more thread....
