I must be the luckiest quilting instructor ever -
Immediately upon the release of Midnight Flight in 100 blocks by 100 designers, vol 4 by Quiltmaker Magazine, I was contacted by the gals in the Pride of the Prairie guild to see if we could do THAT block as a class.
I was very excited that they liked my block so much – and it actually worked out very well as I had just agreed to teach this as a full quilt in Williamsburg VA this coming August.
It just meant getting the quilt completed and the instructions written up just a couple months earlier than I thought ---but in the long run, it worked out well!
I told them it would be a brand new untested class ---and they were willing and raring to go with it!
I never know how much anyone will be able to get done in a 6 hour class, so this was confirmation to me that we broke the units down just right ---everyone pretty much got at least one block done ---and had several more under way with the units we had worked on ----everyone has all the info they need to keep working on this!
I am giving them four years to get it done – I’ll be back in May of 2016!
I don’t have a lot of time for commentary this morning – we are leaving at 7:30am to head to the airport. The NATO conference is in full swing, security in and around Chicago, both on the ground and in the sky is VERY TIGHT and we were told to expect delays and be prepared for them, so getting me to the airport and through security with plenty of time to spare is our main goal --- so let me just send you straight to the slide show:
My thanks to both Illinois guilds that I have spent time with this week --- It’s been an awesome trip, and I owe it all to the Villiage Quilters and the Pride of the Prairie Quilters for making my trip so perfectly wonderful!
I’m on my way to Columbus, OH----where more fun and adventure awaits!
