Simple blocks like the “Jacks on Six” are extremely fun to play with ---simply changing color placement, value placement and and layout can achieve a multitude of different looks.
Some of my favorite blocks are little ones like these ----little asymmetrical gems that can twist and turn and make a quilt look a lot more intricate than it really is.
Yesterday was a 1/2 day workshop – which gave us 4 hours of concentrated sewing time to try new things. To learn how slick the Easy Angle ruler is, to play with color families, to learn some hints, tips and techniques to streamline not only the cutting process, but the sewing and pressing and assembling methods as well.
We had a great time, and several of us ended up out to dinner at Rosa’s Italian Eatery for dinner.
Can I interest anyone in a basket of Garlic Knots? YUMMMMM!!
I may have a little hiccup in my leaving Prescott as planned. I should know from Dad shortly if he is going to be up to making the trip back up here to get me and take me back to Sun Lakes for the night before my flying home from Phoenix on Wednesday ---I talked to him on the phone last night and whatever was ailing him last week has doubled back to bite him again and he is feeling awful.
I feel bad because it is a 2 hour drive up here and 2 hours back – and if he is feeling crappy I don’t want him in the car for 4 hours when he should be in bed ---we are working on an alternative scenario. I may stay up here one more night, and have one of the guild ladies drive me down on Wednesday morning ----or there is always the shuttle.
I won’t know more until I hear from Dad how he slept --- he promised me it was a nyquil night and if he felt bad he would STAY HOME and get better – and I’d find another way to get to the airport.
