I woke up on the right side of the bed this morning and I couldn't help but think about the good time we had during our A Quilting Life Weekend Workshops with Moda designer, Sherri McConnell! Sherri designs fabrics for Moda with her daughter Chelsi and also writes her popular A Quilting Life blog. I know I said I would share September's "What's For Breakfast?" Club project but if you promise me to always be down for a good time....I'll get to that in the next post!
For now I'll let the pictures tell the story, but one thing is clear...these ladies all know how to have a good time!
If you needed proof...just follow Brenda's lead! She loaded up on Cinnamon Rolls from our neighbor, Lux Sucre Desserts and purchased one of Sherri's newest patterns!
That's definitely how to have...a good time!
Debby, Freda, Kim and Jayne also know how to have a good time when the Quilt-A-Razzi ask them to pose for a photo with Sherri! The Happy Days Quilt was the featured project for day one.
P.S. Look at her bag, isn't it cute???
Of course, Sherri brought along many other samples to ensure everyone had....a what?
That's right...a good time!
Pictured below, Jan T. knows how to have a good time! She spent some of her time shopping for these beautiful new Tilda bundles which the "Mothership" has decided to carry. Do you know about the Tilda brand of fabrics? Well if you don't, stay tuned....
Is it just me, or are bag patterns getting cuter and cuter? Did you know the Aubri Tote Bag pictured below is made with two charm packs??? The possibilities are endless and ya know....with a bag like this, you're guaranteed to....what????
That's right...always have a good time...while SHOPPING!
Pictured below are Linda, Donna and Cathy....who also know how to have a...good time!
I should tell you that the "Mothership" insists on good cutting space in the workshops. She's been to a few events where she had to cut while bending over or at her sewing machine. We will always try to keep our workshops to a reasonable size in which we can provide good cutting space!
It ensures that you will definitely....what?
You got it honey...have a good time!
Get the picture?
Janell and Susanna stuck around on day one because they were determined to get ahead with their Happy Days project! Susanna drives up once a year from California to attend our workshops because she knows....she will.....take a guess?
Have a good time!
Even when you're in the Shoppe, I merchandise seeew that you will ....duh....have a good time!
This here is Sherri's newest collection, Creekside!
Oh and here's a little secret, I'm not a female. LOL.
Over the past summer I can't tell you how many times someone said something like, "Well...so there's no one here to help me? Do you know anything about color?" -or- "why is a man in a quilt shop anyway?" and my favorite said to Christine, "a young man just took something from the counter behind you."
Clearly they don't follow the blog....like ever. But that's ok...because all I care about is that they have a....
You got it sweet cakes...
....have a good time!
Loooooove these blues. The Creekside collection is also chalk full of some fantastic low volume prints and great basic prints that everyone can use in their stash!
Look at Joyce and Janelle (not be confused with the other Janell) doing what quilty people do! Having a GOOD TIME!
Love me some of these two ladies! Joyce comes to many of the events and workshops we do and Janelle has been coming since we were in that very first original location! She was thrilled when she learned we moved into her neighborhood of Charbonneau!
Both Janelle and Joyce were sewing their Patchwork Garden Quilt that will look just like this!
What would you make with these Navy Blues? As you can see in many of the quilts around the room, Sherri uses it as her pop of color to make the quilts stand out.
P.S. Navy is the color that disappears quickly around our Shoppe. Seeew when we've got it, come on in and get some!
Oh Joyce! There's always one in every group that defies the laws of gravity and gives the Quilt-A-Razzi that money shot!
Even the Squirrels took notice!
But there's always that one Squirrel - who with his "Squirrel Cam" - knows how to capture everyone having a good time!
This squirrel is also very knowledgeable and will let you in on a little secret....Sherri will be back at the Shoppe March 16 & 17 2018 just in time for her next collection, Front Porch!
Until next time Squirrel Friends....Good Morning & Good Night!
Stay Seeew-cial and have a GOOD TIME! ~ Brian
