We had a great day yesterday, and the scraps were so varied!
And it’s been a fun easy-paced respite for me too ----my classes this weekend are Scrappy Trips and Basketweave Strings, which is up on deck today, no specialty ruler tutorials, no fussing or mussing about perfection – it’s a perfect way to sew together and have a really great time.
It was interesting hearing where these meager scraps found their beginning, some coming from grandmother’s stashes, or from the “Deep Stash” of a quilter friend who had passed on --- our memories are still connected to them through the print on the fabric. Our memories are deeply rooted, and those loved ones were present with us yesterday.
Of course we had several featherweights in class…these friends are from Fredericksburg, VA and I will be visiting their guild in June, happy it won’t be long until I see them again. They've been a ton of fun.
Oh, and a funny --
Every evening there are little goodies and gifts at our dining room tables – last night we received fabric “fortune cookies” with sayings in them. I loved mine…LOL!
“It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others!” LOL!!
Our presentation last night was given by Pat Speth – I have her photos coming up in a not-so-distant future post, be watching for that! She is a treat, and we really ARE cut from the same scrappy cloth.
My students got a ton done, come check it out!

It's just about breakfast time and our day is really to roll off into a big start.
Tonight is my lecture, all about string quilts! I've brought some great quilts to share, including some antique ones that inspire my love of all things stringy. I'm looking forward to sharing this passion for string quilts with everyone at VCQ
Have a great Saturday, Everyone!
