I’m a day off in sharing class photos because of today’s Celtic Solstice mystery reveal that went live at midnight as the ball dropped!
Class is done for today, and I have some time to upload the photos as an evening post.
But before I do that ---many of you may have noticed a format change on the blog.
If you click to the blog home address, http://quiltville.blogspot.com you will notice that instead of there being one big, most recent post – there is a chronology of short post summaries, looking much like a mobile app ---I want to try this so it is easier for people to choose which post they want insteads of paging back and paging back and paging back to get to a post a few days previous. There are 6 recent posts on the HOME page so you can just click the READ MORE option to go to the post you want.
The only thing that is happening is that with the code I inserted, the first picture of each post on the home page is a bit stretched and weird. I do NOT know how to fix it. I’m thinking it’s because of the large photo format I use in Windows Live Writer, but never fear, when you click the READ MORE link and actually get to the REAL POST – there is no circus mirror look to the photos.
In other words, you don't have to email me or comment asking "Is it just me?" or "did I do something wrong?" because you didn't -- it just is, and it doesn't matter. :)
Back to our CLASS!
Roll Roll Cotton boll was our mystery FOUR Mysteries ago. How can time go by so quickly?
It is also one of my favorite classes to teach, because the string piecing segment is so fun. We get to really break out of our boxes and find what really DOES qualify as a neutral, share strips with each other to increase the variety, and play stress free. And we get to play with the Easy Angle Ruler for triangles in two sizes --- starting big to get a bit of experience under our belts, and moving to small ones that frame the center church dash in each pieced block.
I loved all the different color combos that made an appearance – you’ll see them in the slide show below!
I also hope you can tell by the photos what a great time everyone was having –what a perfect way to spend New Year’s Eve Day!
