Crazy Sails – Florida Style is done

We are so excited.  The JaM Session’s top for May 22nd is pieced and is being quilted today.  Wow! did it turn out GREAT.  Here are some pictures of it.  Registration will open on Saturday at the store.  Margy, one of the owners, will be teaching this class.  We do have a kit of fabric as it appears in these pictures.  The book called Those Crazy Kids by The Buggy Barn will be included in your class fee.  This is a fabulous technique and once you are familiar with it, the wonderful world of their books and style will be open to you.   DSCN0160

Here it is draped over bolts.  Yes, now it is backing time. A 108” Blue with a star pattern was the one chosen .  But we have found with wide backs a pre-shrink washing is definitely a good idea.  So home to wash was Margy’s next stop.  The next picture shows it hanging over the Free Spirit/Westminster area. 

DSCN0162Okay, it is not small.  The quilt is 71” x 87”.


Here is a close up and I wish blogs had sounds so you could hear the oohs, and aahs that were heard in the shop when it was opened up and shared with the quilters here.  As you can see the water is definitely South Florida’s ocean shades.  The whole quilt  just makes you smile and is for the sailor in your life.  We sure hope that DSCN0161  

May 22nd can be a day you can come and sew at this latest JaM Session.  Have a great day quilting.
