Unruly Quilters

Tonya Ricucci led the unruly quilters of the OMQG on our all day Unruly Quilting workshop.
Tonya shared examples of her beautiful quilts to inspire us.
We shared our fabric scraps.
By noon we had enough letters to create a small quilt.  By afternoon we added more letters,  x's and o's, and wonky stars.
We had a great time and a number of people walked away at the end of the day with the beginnings of new quilts done the unruly way. :)
