peeking around the corner....

Hi--I'm Karen.....I feel like I have to re-introduce myself! I've been out of touch for such a long time. Long story........cruising along life's highway and hit a major bump in the road. But I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. The world sure doesn't stop when your own life does! Unfortunately, I haven't been doing a whole lot of sewing...but I will soon be back at it. I did do a few things during this barren period, thank goodness for classes that require samples! A little motivation sometimes is needed.

Here is the one thing that I have worked on in the past weeks....I took the book, "Monterrey Medallions" by Terry Atkinson and made a mystery class out of it. I gave the students weekly updates on what they were to buy, helping them choose colors, what to cut and a little bit of sewing. Then we met on a Saturday for an all day class. We had a potluck salad lunch with lots of yummy food and then I prepared dinner for them while they sewed. Here are the 4 blocks that were in the quilt and then the final layout that I chose.
