IRISH COURTHOUSE STEPS

Yesterday I spent a very enjoyable day taking a workshop from Heather Stewart. The workshop was Irish Courthouse Steps. Lots of cutting and lots of sewing in this quilt, but the finished quilt is gorgeous. It is a great way to use up my scraps.
The quilt consists of two different blocks. The workshop started at 9:30 am and we finished at 4 p.m.
Included in this workshop was one of Heather's delicious luncheons. On the menu was cauliflower mac and cheese with a salad consisting of mixed greens, goat cheese, pomegranate seeds and walnuts. For desert we had lemon loaf with a cup of freshly brewed tea. Absolutely delicious! I just love Heather's luncheons, everything is always so fresh and home made. Below are photos of my two completed blocks for the quilt.
