    My favourite quilt store is having a class tonight, called a Night-Owl-Hoot. We all arrive at 6pm, get served dinner, then sew till we can't stand it any more! Sounds like heaven! :-)

    Tonight's one is for jelly rolls... I've had a gorgeous bright one sitting in my stash for a looooong time. It's all cut up and ready to go... apparently they usually get a whole quilt top pieced in one night.



    The plain colours are for the blocks, the stripe is for the sashing, and the purple on the bottom is the border.

    lol

    I've seen another lady's fabric selection, and it's very country and subdued. The instructor reckons she's going to stick me in a corner and I can provide my own illumination! LOL

    The pattern is already chosen... they're doing a snowball type block. It's not particularly appealing to me, or challenging, but I know several of the ladies going tonight and it will be a LOT of fun. And I had the jelly roll sitting there, gotta do something with it. A night of laughing, sewing, and good food is just what I need. :D

    Depending on how tired I am when I get home... I'll post pics tonight. But more likely it will be this time tomorrow. ;-)

    They usually finish up around midnight, which is about when we go to bed anyway, so I'm hoping I'll last till the end!

    Oh it sounds like a blast!!! I can't wait to see what you come up with! Even if the pattern is a little on the simple side, with you fabric choices, it will be anything but simple looking! :mrgreen:

    Wow how fun....Fabric store too far away where I live...I have to drive 30 to 40 minutes to one or 1 1/2 hour to the next...How lucky to live close to one..well I guess it keeps me out of trouble and saves money!!

    It's about a 30 minute drive from here to there, but it's worth it.

    I'm home now.... it's almost 1am, so no photos sorry. Had an absolute blast, got all my blocks made and up on the design wall, they're now stacked neatly in their rows ready to go together.

    I have to say, it looks absolutely stunning. I thought the colours would be too much, too bright, too in your face... but they go awesomely (is that even a word? too late to care! ;-) )

    Can't wait to show you guys! Right now my pillow is calling me....

    :-)
