Pebble Pop Workshop

Once upon a time, my guild was hosting Daisy @warmfolk for a class at our LQS.  Since an in-person class was no longer an option, we turned the class virtual!

There were about 23 quilters in the class, each tucked away in our own sewing spaces.

Daisy is an awesome teacher.   She walked us through the steps of creating these fun blocks

I am thinking I'll make 9 blocks in total (although not sure my gold/gray block fits with the other 2).

The blocks were a lot of fun to create and even thought they are improv, I am still amazed how different each one looks!

I broke out my oldest and yuckiest cutting mat to cut the curves on so I didn't mess up my new mat.

There were lots of advantages to a virtual quilt class.  For starters, you didn't need to carry your heavy machine into a classroom nor did you have to carry extra fabric in case you hadn't made a decision what you wanted to use.  There was plenty of opportunity for chatter as we worked too.  The biggest disadvantage was that it was harder for Daisy to walk around and check on everyone's progress.

Everyone seemed to make at least 2 blocks by the time we were done.

Have you tried a virtual quilt class yet?

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. That looks like fun. I can imagine the problems Daisy had to check you were all doing OK. I spend my days teaching on line currently and it is exhausting but fun.

  2. I haven't tried it yet, but my first attempt will be on October 10th with Sujata. I hope I can figure out the technology and keep up!

  3. That looks like a great workshop! I'll be taking my first virtual workshop on Nov 7

  4. Looks like a great class. I attended one of her lectures at QuiltCon and totally enjoyed it.

  5. being in Australia I'm so excited about online classes (except for the time difference !!)

  6. Sounds like such a fun workshop! I have not taken a virtual workshop but there sounds like there are very very big positives in going that way (not packing up my sewing room is a huge one).

  7. It was such a great class and from the comfort of home was a bonus!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
