Victoria! Texas that is!

A couple of weeks ago I was the guest speaker for the Victoria Area Quilt Guild!  They are a very busy guild!  And so many nice ladies!  It was great to see all the familiar faces in the group too – many of these ladies had been on the Quilting Cruise earlier this year!

They meet on the 4th Thursday of the month – you can learn more about them here.

To view their photos from show and tell and/or my trunk show.

Here are a few of the show and tells from their guild meeting!

This redwork was done by one guild member and another guild member made the quilt. Exquisite needle work on the redwork.

A great setting for those prints that scream to be seen.

And this adorable barn quilt for a young child - when I grow up I want to needle turn like that!

Beautiful appliqué mixed with log cabin blocks. The subtlety of the colors really was very attractive

After the meeting and a quick bite to eat we started our workshop.  Compass Rose Table Runner!  This is a great pattern and the there are enough papers included in the pattern to make 2 table runners.  This block is also the center for Mariner’s Compass (retreat in October).  It is also a featured block in Captain’s Wheel.

Here are a few photos from the workshop.
