Arrived back home in Georgia yesterday, having spent several days out in Water Valley, Mississippi, at daughter Coulter's YaloRUN Studio, where I taught the first half of a workshop on the Rail Fence quilt pattern -- to beginners.  The class sold out at 7 participants -- the number of sewing machines at YaloRUN -- and a good time was had by all!  I've never had such a completely focused, hard-working group as this one.  For real!  And all the different design and color choices were terrific!  Everybody finished cutting strips and sewing long strips together. A few even got started assembling blocks. I was particularly impressed with all the creative designs and color choices.  We'll all meet back in two weeks, theoretically with finished tops, for the second half of the workshop when we'll make quilt sandwiches and begin to hand quilt.  

Here are a few photos from the workshop:

I look forward to going back out to Mississippi for the second half of the workshop on January 24. Can't wait to see what everybody's made!
