Solving the Quilt Puzzle/Winners On Diamond Quilt

For those of you who joined the blog tour for Quiltmakers100 Block vol. 9 blog tour, here is the answer to my question from last weeks blog. The question was to find the two triangle blocks in this quilt. The two triangle blocks that make up the quilt, Under the Sea,
 are framed in the yellow triangles.  
 Not as complicated as you thought.
I will be teaching this class at Sew Classic Fabrics May 15, 22, 29 and June 5.

I am so excited! C&T Publishing has accepted my 4th book. It takes about 1 1/2 years for the book 
to make it to the published stage. So long. :(

My sewing project this week is to quilt, quilt, quilt.

 This weekend I had the privilege to teach and speak for the Colonial Piecemakers Quilt Guild in Norge, VA.  Here is a picture of the charity quilts they made this month. 

In class, Catherine chose to make the Shenandoah Star out of paper instead of  fabric.  It turned out really neat. 

 Here are a few of the ladies that were in the class.  I just love seeing the different color-ways people pick for quilts.

The winner of the Quiltmaker 100 Block Vol. 9 magazine is Debbie and the winner of my book Diamond Chain Quilts is also Debbie.

  2. I just love the stars that your students created. All of them are quite striking in the colors that they choose. Thank you for sharing and showing us where the triangles were.
