Jillily's Overture!

The Overture class didn't begin on Sunday until 12:30 pm ...
... but the room was available at 9:00 so members could choose to come and continue working on their Trellis!

Jill was impressed when she arrived and found all the progress everyone had made!  Each one is different and unique in its own way!  Such fun!
We were excited to move forward as we began working on the "Overture" wall quilt.  Our second Jillily quilt!
We began with the appliqu├ęd center block!
Members could choose to do this block with either cotton or wool.  Jill reviewed her applique' techniques using cotton!  It was great to go over it twice ... there were many questions answered!
Next she shared her techniques using wool!

Again ... such fun to see all the different color choices!  Each and everyone beautiful!
The piecing on this quilt is very different from the Trellis.
Jill demonstrated several tips to improve our accuracy!  Skills we can apply to all our patchwork!
It was such a wonderful weekend ... in every possible way!  Jill was so generous with her time and talent!  She encouraged and empowered us ... not only in our quilting, but in all areas of our lives!
This sticker on a member's machine says it all ... our retreats, here in Cordova, are a very happy place!  Special thanks to Jill for all she did to make our fall retreat exceptional!  We all enjoyed the time spent with her!
