A Moth in the Window Day!

20170727_190413
These gals were ready for a day of stitching up Moth in the Window blocks and waiting for doors to Open, Open, Open!

A bright and blue skied morning – Everything smelled so good due to the rain storms the night before that washed the desert clean.  I wished we could have just stayed outside a bit longer, but it was time to get in and set up and get going.

And we’ve got this view from the parking lot!

I so love the mountains.

A bonus surprise for lunch!

I am teaching a short 10 minute drive from where my sister Joy lives.  I called her up and asked if she wanted to come see what I was up to and join me for lunch.  Even better, she brought my nieces Kelli and Emmie.  So happy to see them one more time!  And better yet, she found my missing sock that was  lost in a deep dark corner.  Thanks for coming to see me, girls!

Essential Triangle Tool for Lefties!

I took a couple of close up pics of some left-handed cutting to show the lefties just how it’s done.  Using the ruler in mirror image, it’s very easy to cut your half-square triangles in matched pairs by placing the two strips right sides together.  In first position place the green triangle tip toward you, and the line with the finished size of the triangle unit you want at the top of the strip set (on the fabric, not above it!) And make your first cut.

Second position.

Pivot the ruler so the green triangle top is at the top of the strip set and your measuring line is now on the bottom of the strip set.  Make second cut, putting the end of the strip set back on the straight of grain again.  Pivot the ruler back to position number one and lather, rinse, repeat!

There are videos on how to cut with the Essential Triangle Tool under the videos tab at the top of the blog.

Sew many blocks made this day!


Our crazy video collage!

It was a great day, and I can’t wait to do it again today – with Scrap Crystals from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders!

You’ll find the rest of our days fun in the slide show below!


What a fun day, girls!!

We also made a little trip over to Thimbles & Threads in Draper.  Oh my goodness.  If you haven’t been to this place, it’s phenomenal.  It was built as a quilt shop/retreat center all in one, and I would call this one 5 star, folks….I seriously didn’t want to leave and was so happy to have been offered a tour.  Check this out:


Oh my gracious. Couldn't you just stay forever??

You were only 350 miles away and I didn't know it. I'm so sad I didn't get to be a participant in Riverton. I'm thinking of all the things I could have learned.

Thank you for posting the info on the Essential Triangles for us "lefties." Most of us are used to just figuring it out on our own, but I truly appreciate when a teacher takes the time to DEMONSTRATE cutting the correct left-hand way! Kudos to you, Bonnie. That is something that many teachers ever think about, and there are LOTS of left-handed quilters out there😊.

I Love those 404's! I will have one someday to go next to my 503a. A Pink Atlas or Universal would be sweet...

Loved that your sister got to come and see you and return your errant sock. It's another flip flop day in Washington State. Vintage love in Utah. Sign me up for a 5-Star Retreat Center! I'm too old for the bunkhouse again. Did they book you a time on your calendar to come back and teach there?

I can’t believe I’m actually writing a testimony. Thanks to Dr. Twaha! What a valley my family has been through. My husband said he was done, he said he wanted a divorce. There was another woman who once told me she will do anything to have my man by her side; he said he was miserable with me. I wanted to run away and disappear at first, but something stopped me in my tracks. I had the desire in my heart to stand for my marriage and then I came across Dr Twaha website. Thank God for Dr Twaha! I was told from various places that I officially had an ‘out’ from my marriage, but I didn’t want out. I felt the tug of my marriage vows and knew this whole situation was bigger than me. I praise God that I didn’t submit to my hurt and emotions. The circumstances were horrible. The pain I experienced was so deep, it was physical. My faith when I came across Dr Twaha was solid. I had this strong trust in him. There are still real spell caster on the net. Now my family is a living breathing example!” (You can contact Dr twaha on his email dr_twaha@dr.com or visit his website at http://drtwaha.webs.com/love-you-again
