Some of you knew, some guessed, some scratched their heads - if you know about her Bibliophile posts, Help for Hexies, and Feline Friday - you know who Sarah is. And this was a year in the making. Do you know how hard it is to keep a year long secret when you are both bloggers?
Sarah Ballinger of Castile, NY travel to our little neck of the woods to give a Hexie class in the morning and then a trunk show that afternoon. Our local quilt guild, the Schoharie Valley Piecemakers, did the hosting.
Some of our class participants - Emily (in the blue shirt) stitched with us and then headed out to her College Graduation. AND yes, she took her hexie class project bag to the ceremony and worked on it during the l.o.n.g. ceremony.
I think we surprised Sarah with a man in the class - we have four men in our guild.
Everyone hard at work - concentrating on a very new technique to many of us.
We held this in St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Middleburgh, NY - lovely hall they provide our guild to use.
Most of the class with their rosettes - some of us were taking photos and a few had to leave early.
We got to drool all over Sarah's trunk show pieces. I think this one was the favorite.
Althoug this is not a Hexie - the fabrics are all hexie prints. Sarah had put a call out on her blog for people to send her hexi prints and this is the result.
I cropped this out of one of the photos - we had a miniature version of a 'bed turning' . Sarah's cute little antique bed for her kitties - all the miniatures, which I love.
Please be sure to visit Sarah Did It as she has some things to share today, too.
Thank you Sarah for a lovely class and trunk show. You opened our eyes to another venue of quilting.
