Pam Rocco Workshop

How lucky are we at the SBAMQG to have the incomparable Pam Rocco as a member, friend, and guild Vice President? We definitely know how lucky we are and we make use of her experience, knowledge, and wonderful energy every way we can. Last week, for instance, we enjoyed a workshop with Pam in which she taught us how to make her famous 1/4-Log Cabin quilt. As many readers know, Pam writes a monthly column for Quilter’s Newsletter magazine. (Her writing is entertaining and her quilts are outstanding!) This particular quilt, which was featured in a recent QN issue, has proven to be quite popular and you can read about it and get a free pattern here: Quilter’s Newsletter.

As for our workshop, it was a great way to spend a rainy day and we had so much fun!

The SBAMQG always appreciates a good trunk show (this is just a peek):

Here’s some early progress. It appears that many of us were inspired by Pam’s blue and green quilt:

But quite a few of us had other ideas too:

It will be exciting to see what we come up with. Thank you Pam – it was so much fun!
