More of Hurry Up Spring, 2009

The Montreat Quilt Retreat Report, 2009 It was a 5 bobbin class. Yes, we stitched ourselves silly, but the results were astounding. I called this quilt "The Real Trip Around the World". quilt. I just can not show all of them but the ones below are in order made from JoAnne, Lee's (all feed sacks), yours truly (I made it to look old and match an antique model) and Lorna (yes, she is from Florida hence the bright colors). I will save the rest for "The Book'!











Now for my tip of the day. Here is a close up of the ultimate in seam rip out! Yes, the answer is a man's mustache trimmer and a good friend to hold the seams taut. It sure did work here for Sheila and Peggy!

Dear Georgia, You are my quilting icon. I have loved you since I purchased your first book in the early 70's (I think). If you are ever in Knoxville come by my quilt shop, Mammaw's Thimble. I would love to meet you. Perhaps you will be in Knoxville for one of the AQS shows just 3 miles from my shop. See, you did make an impression on me! I own a quilt shop. Thank you for everything that you have done for the quilting community. Vivian Ann

I am new to quilting but I love this pattern. Is this in any of her books? Is it a 4 patch? Any info would be appreciated.
