Last month I was able to teach my Razzleberry pattern as a class at our local quilt shop, Bolts & Quarters Quilt Shop. Isn’t that a cool name for a quilt shop? One of my elderly customers calls it Nuts & Bolts. I think that fits all of us who work there perfectly……LOL!
Anyway…we are limiting our classes to 8 students so we can be socially distant while still getting together to quilt. We are fortunate to have a HUGE classroom that allows everyone to have their own 5 foot table and ironing board/iron. There are three 6 foot cutting stations, and all the walls are design walls. It’s a fantastic space and I love that I get to teach there. For the Razzleberry class I had an afternoon session and evening session on the same day. There were 6 students in one session and 4 in the other. Three students got their quilts totally finished, and the others aren’t far behind.
The best thing about teaching one of my patterns is seeing all the different fabric combinations. It’s always so fun for me to see the fabrics someone chooses to work with, and then to see the completed quilt. I mean, look how different the two quilts are above. Tish’s quilt (on the left) has a couple of fussy cut squares in her blocks. She fussy cut a beehive and bee’s because “bees love flowers” and her red fabric is a flower print. How fun!
I think Carol’s quilt has a tropical vibe to it – makes me think of sun, sand, and warm, clear, tropical water. Yummm…..
I’ll be sharing more versions of Razzleberry as they are completed. I’m really excited to see Melissa’s top when she gets it together. She’s using the prettiest green/yellow/white combination. I also have Diane’s finished top in my queue to get quilted. She chose to use a green background fabric instead of the white the others have and I’m so happy she did. It looks fantastic! I’ll share that one once it’s quilted.
If you want to make your own version of Razzleberry, hop on over to my Pattern Shop and get your copy of the pattern today! I would love to see your finished quilt top!
