Bay Area Quilt Guild – Cactus Flower Table Runner

Last week I had the pleasure of providing a lecture/trunk show for the Bay Area Quilt Guild and the next followed it up with a workshop to make the Cactus Flower Table Runner.  The Bay Area Quilt Guild is located just south of Houston, TX and they are not far from my home.  Many of these members are also members of my guild, Lakeview Quilters Guild – I started out nervous because, well these guys know me!  As I started talking it was so fun to share because we all know so many of the same quilters and the stories are just a little bit more entertaining when that happens!

I thought I would share a few photos from our workshop, which was held at Fabrics Etc on Bay Area Blvd.

We had 4 Debbie’s in our class, so when you see that “Debbie” made a particular block – realize there was more than 1.

I love Debbie's colors.

And this Debbie was so busy taking care of us, ordering our lunch and stuff that she was just tickled to get this much sewing done.  She is excited about paper piecing and anxious to work on this project at home

My next trip is to Brenham, TX next week.  For those of you that are not from our area, this is the home of BlueBell Ice Cream!  Yummy!
