Some ladies were quite comfortable with “scrappy everything as Bev’s sample here ----This quilt is going to end up as a donation quilt through a sub-group of the Quail Country Quilters who call themselves the “Scrap Rats” What a CUTE name for a bunch of charity quilters making quilts from scraps!
Someone is going to love this colorful and fun quilt!
In yesterday’s “iphone-o-gram” I showed you a couple of the painted-lady featherweights in class….I forgot to mention that we also had a white one from the 1960s, and a few black ones wearing their original paint jobs as well!
And I was pleased to have Cathy’s featherweight with me on loan at the guest house!
I looked up her number….she’s a centennial girl from 1951, and she sews SEW well.
Come take a look at how busy we were!
I want one of these for my retreat bag:
The Quail Country Quilters meet in the mornings -- -so we have a morning lecture today, and then I’m off again back down to the Phoenix area to spend some time with my Dad and my brother and family. I think there are plans underway for a family outing to go see Les Mis. I saw it on stage many many years ago, so I’m looking forward to the production. Even though I know it will make me sad – it’s a tragedy after all. And I’m sensitive that way, especially with some of the songs ---but I can’t wait!
I’ve really enjoyed being up in this area ---there are more pics from Jerome to come, and I’ll be back up in Prescott on Sunday so my Arizona adventure continues on!
