SOMEONE knew what they were doing when they scheduled Texas Braid for the last class!
It was the perfect Sew-Easy project after giving all of our energy to the previous two days.
I had several students who had taken all three days of classes in my room, and some who took two days ---these ladies are die hard quilters! Anyone who is willing to start 3 large bed-sized UFOs in one weekend gets a High Five from me!
There will be a big dent made in the scrap stash of many as they finish these quilts---but I bet that this morning many are sleeping in to regain their energy after all of the weekend festivities!
((Spring forward is not so nice on Sunday Morning no matter how much I love it when it is light later in the evenings!))
THIS made me smile:
Bricks and squares, counted into bundles of 100 and tied with ribbon bows!
Perfect little Quilter’s Candy!
Snap-ware with little cubbies also hold cornerstone squares contained and ready for use!
We are serious about our art, and we love things that make it cute, fun and organized!
It’s amazing how the changing colors from student to student can have such a dramatic effect on the whole quilt! Watch the colors change as you go through the slide show below….and be inspired!
After checking in we all met back down in the lobby and I headed off to dinner with 5 of the most fabulous Quilt instructors ever!
Special thanks to the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show staff for a wonderful event!
Highlight of the evening? Sharing a plate of cake with two forks with Becky Goldsmith. Love that lady!
Travel Safe, Charlotte Angotti, Debbie Caffrey, Becky Goldsmith, RaNae Merrill, and Donna Thomas! Catch you next time around!
My shuttle leaves for the airport in about 45 minutes. As I get ready I’m downloading a couple episodes of “Call The Midwife” season 1 to my kindle fire so I have something to stitch by on my flights…..
I’m on my way home!
