Jacquie Gering Visits! (Post 2 of 2)

Earlier this week I posted about Jacquie's lecture and trunk show with our guild. Today I'm here to share some pictures of the Slice and Insert workshop she taught to 20 members and guests the same weekend!

First, Jacquie shared her Slice and Insert quilts (again, amazing to see in person!) and demonstrated the method.

Then, we had the opportunity to try it ourselves! Halfway through, Jacquie shared methods for piecing slice and insert blocks together.

As we worked, I walked around and snapped some pictures of the design walls. It was so interesting to see the different color schemes everyone chose! Plus, some used wedges and 1 inch strips while others made use of small scraps. Jacquie gave her time to each and every student throughout.

A busy, happy room!

We had a fantastic time! Thanks again Jacquie for sharing your talent, expertise, and encouragement! Members, please feel free to bring your blocks to the September meeting so we can all see them in person!
