Prmitives of the Midwest - Day 2

Wednesday night was the PJ party at Quilters Station with demos from the teachers. Here is the Ohio clan who won the 'best PJ' contest. I am so proud to be an Ohioan!!! Lynda Hall was entertaining and as you can see fun was had by all. Rita and he staff at Quilters Station go all out to make this event so memorable. I love to be able to visit with all the teachers and get to know them personally. I have spent most of the week with Renee Plains and Jo Morton they have been great company.
My second class was my little quilt Red Clover. We worked with hand dyed wool, silk and velvet along with ribbons and embellishments. It is always fun to see the same blocks made up in different colors.
I feel very privileged as Renee Plains had a day off and decided to take my class. I love the softer shades of her block above.
As you can see we embellished with different fibers. I always say you do not need much of each fiber just a great selection. I just love to see how each student interprets the images.
Here is the Saffron Needle Roll made by Cathie Lazor from Ohio. This is one of my favorite needle roll patterns. It looks great in all colorways. Thanks Cathie for sharing.
Today I am not teaching so this is a wonderful opportunity to catch up. It is unbelievably hot here so I will be staying indoors and stitching.
