Say Hello to Miss Lilliana, or Lilly for short!
And short she is! She should be. She is only 7 years old, and was our youngest student in yesterday’s crumbs class.
Here she is so proud of her trimmed up Maverick Star! Good going, Lilly!
A model student, I think all of us wished for a granddaughter just like Lilly who was here with her grandma to spend the day with us.
She is so cute and smart -- she is going to take the 2nd grade by storm this fall!
We had a ton of fun digging in the scraps that everyone brought to share!
There is a ton of good *STUFF* in these bins!
And yes, I showed much restraint ---the only thing I picked up was a small stack of 2.5” red squares that are going right into my hexagon travel bag – I need some variety and I have a lot of flying hexie time coming up in the next week when I head to England on August 1st. Since it went into the hexie bag, and not into the basement, I can justify it!Si
Since this day was ALL ABOUT CRUMBS and sewing them up in fun ways, we also had some great Crumb Show & Share at lunch time to inspire us--
Barb is sharing her crumb quilt with all her leftover bits and pieces.
Lilly and her Grandma are sharing a cousin’s quilt!
The alphabet gets read every night before bed time! Sweet!
It was just such a fun day, a fast paced frenzy of scrap piecing filled with loads of chatter, tons of laughter and so much inspiration!

My evening was an easy one. Early Dinner after class at the Black Dog BBQ:
Black Dog in Urbana – go early, and plan on waiting. It’s worth it!
I am lucky enough to be gifted a Featherweight for my use while here, and I finally got to sew last night!
1 zip lock baggie of little scraps + paper foundations + one borrowed featherweight = 1 happy evening of hotel sewing! That is until it got a bit late ---
Uhoh! Time for bed!
Today we will be playing with 2.5” strips and making a bunch of beautiful Sister’s Choice blocks. Another day to play in Champaign Illinois ---
