Countraband Quilters host Debbie Maddy

What a great class day.  This is the group shot at the end of the day.  A good group came,
She was a great teacher and I learned a lot.  One of the biggest things was how to press, yes press half square triangles.  It will really change my accuracy in the future.  

We used 8 fat quarters to make the quilt she's showing called a carpenter's star.  I am making the wall size.  The picture shows how you can place your fabric in the most pleasing way.  Works really good.
There were plenty of tips all day long and lots of demonstrations.  I really enjoyed the day, enough though I had just returned from a 4 day retreat and was tired.  My quilt is pinned into rows and only waits for me to finish putting it together.  Other things in the way now.
