Half day workshops make me panicky!
There, I said it!
Half day workshops where you want to give as much info as you can to students – everything you would throw into a full day workshop, condensed into a mere 3 hours that goes so quickly!
Can we pace this in a way that everyone will also be able to relax and enjoy the time we have without feeling rushed?
I think we made a very good job of it. Our goal was to learn the ins and outs of the Easy Angle ruler when working with small triangles. We had a great time!
Scrap Crystals was a block that I first submitted to 100 blocks by 100 designers for Quiltmaker Magazine ---and also taught it as our workshop on an Alaskan cruise. But it really is very simple. It’s ONE unit – a Broken Dishes, just like in our Grand Illusion Mystery!
Does this look wrong? It’s RIGHT!
These also!! Completely right!
The layout may look weird here –but this is correct. I’ve given these units a slogan of “Don’t Drink and Quilt!” But they are totally and awesomely right! Because when you rotate four of these “drunken” stars together you get this:
A section of My Scrap Crystals!
You can find the pattern for my Scrap Crystals quilt in my book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders.

Thank you for a wonderful couple of days, San Antonio, Texas!
We are now on our way to Fredericksburg for a My Blue Heaven workshop with the Vereins Quilt Guild. After today’s workshop is over I am being shuttled off to Kerrville and our Texas Quilt Adventure continues.
I’ll miss hanging around with my friend Irene, but I’ll be back to her house on Wednesday evening for one last shin-dig and then she will be taking me to the airport on Thursday for my trip home.
Enjoy your Sunday, everyone – whatever you get up to, don’t forget to pet the fabric!
