The day before the Buggy Barn Outdoor Quilt I took a class working with wool. Maggie is a designer for Need'l Love and she has her own primitive folk shop and patterns called Butternut House.
I arrived very early for the class, I needed time to look around the store before going to class. I spent a long time in the shop before Pam came over to gently remind me, the class will start soon.
The class room inside the barn is large with lots of quilts on every wall. Here we all are hard at work cutting and deciding where the oak leaves will be placed. Maggie is a very good teacher, she helped us all get our arrangements looking good. Not much else to report, only that everyone was having a good time and the catered lunch was excellent.
My wool table mat is all arranged and ready to be hand stitched. I did some hand basting of the stems to avoid having so many pins while stitching. The outer edge of the mat will have green tongues all the way around. Maggie showed a really quick way to cut these, kinda like paper dolls.
This big fabric bundle is to make the quilt shown on the open book. The shop has two samples of this quilt, one in lights and the other in darks. I was first attracted to the light colours and though about it for awhile but finally decided on the darker colours for my quilt. This will be my first buggy barn pattern, I hope I can do it with that tiny star in the centre.
I also found a couple of other items I couldn't go home without. The wool at the shop was hard to resist, they had so many colours and textures to choose from. The patterns are for 2 small quilts I really liked and the Butternut house pattern is for a needleroll.
Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit. Happy stitching.
