Total Eclipse at Coastal Prairie Quilt Guild

Last week I was invited to give a lecture and a 1 1/2 day workshop for the members of Coastal Prairie Quilt Guild.  It had been a few years since I last visited them and I was excited to join them again.

They meet in a lovely Church in Missouri City, TX –

Beautiful stained glass is always inspiring.

After a morning lecture we moved to another part of the Church for the first part of our workshop.  We were making Total Eclipse by Judy Niemeyer aka Quiltworx.  This is a really fun quilt to make and I love seeing all of the different color combinations.  We had less than 3 hours the first day and I was so excited how quickly these students grasped paper piecing.  Look how much they got done!

These will be for a wall quilt - wait until you see the KM unit fabric.
