Wonderful day of quilting

Today was a great day to spend with  31 quilters all working on Random Access quilt blocks.  This was so much fun.  The block pattern (a star) was given and we had to cut the pieces and put each set in a bag numbered 1-7.  You reach in a bag take a piece or set of pieces out and built blocks this way.  When I started I thought, “Oh NO, this is butt hurt ugly.”  I was ready to pitch it and say this isn’t for me.  The instructor, Nancy Austin Swanwick, kept saying wait, just wait.  She was right.  I loved it.   There will be 32 12 inch blocks in this quilt and they will all be different.  It really is great.

These are 3 of the blocks I made.  This is one of her finished quilts.IMG_20171110_134456883.jpg

The rest of these pictures are of other people’s blocks and the fun activities.

Do you ever make more than one of the same quilt or is one enough?
