Seminar Part Two

On the second day of the seminar, I took Debbie Caffrey’s Open a Can of Worms  and Another Can of Worms class.  We were working with 2 1/2” strips cutting half square triangles, quarter square triangles and trapezoids.  I’ve been playing around with her methods since coming home and I like them!!!!

This is her Road To Oklahoma quilt and it was hung on a folding screen which is why it looks funny in the middle.

This one is called Four Patches and Friends.

This last one is her Bluebonnets quilt and the fabric was just stunning.  Once again, the pictures don’t do it justice.

If you ever get the opportunity to take one of Debbie’s classes, I would highly recommend it.  I can honestly say I learned more USEFUL information from her on basic quilt making skills than any other class I’ve taken.

Since Leo has been away fishing all weekend, I’ve been busy trying out all the techniques I learned.  I just need to get some pictures taken so I can show you.
