|This July (2006) I was invited to the Brandon Florida Quilt Guild to teach an all day class and speak at their meeting.
Only a two hour drive from home I packed up early on Saturday morning and arrived in Brandon to find 19 gals ready to get to work. I had them precut their pieces - using templates no less! I know, I know, no one likes templates, but like I told them, make friends with templates; you never know when you need one!(Scrappy is done best this way!) They had read all the instructions in the pattern and were ready for a fun day of just sewing! They had chosen SHOTGUN WEDDING as their project and I was very impressed with their results. I couldn't wait to share pictures with all of you.
I drove back down to Brandon Monday evening to speak at their meeting and I forgot to take my camera. I was totally surprised to see how many of these gals completed their tops. I'm hoping many of them send pictures to share in the parlor room. Raedene already has and I've posted her quilt top there for you to see.
I want to say THANK YOU to the Brandon Quilt League for inviting me to come play with them and to say how much fun I had. You all did a wonderful job! Lynda
