Ladies of the Evening Mystery Class

I had a great evening on Friday night with 7 quilting friends at Reichard's quilt store. Our teacher Deb Beirnes has been running her "ladies of the evening" mystery classes for many, many years, and I have been attending for the last few years. We started with a show and tell of some of our previous projects, mostly finished of course!
We enjoyed a yummy potluck supper while we visited and set up our sewing stations. And then came the big reveal of our mystery is the fabric kit we received. The squares are Kaffe Fassett fabrics, which will be framed with the jelly roll of tone on tone strips.  
This is the sample quilt being modeled by our beautiful teacher Deb! The pattern we used is called "Slash a stash" by Susan Fuquay. The blocks are constructed like log cabin blocks, which are then sliced up and sewn back together with scrappy fabric combinations. 
We had lots of fun auditioning many different border fabrics when we needed a break from sewing. It was a great evening of playing with fabric and making memories with dear friends, plus we'll each have a great quilt someday!

Ladies of the Evening have a better reputation than ladies of the night--right? : )
That is a fun looking quilt.
