Workshop with The Valley Forge Homestead Quilters
I had the nicest bunch of ladies for a workshop on Saturday! They all were so enthusiastic and willing to try making a quilt block without a ruler.
I especially love it when a student changes the "pattern" to make it fit their idea of what they want to make. It tells me that the wheels are turning!
Many made 2 or more blocks and tried some extra ideas that I gave them to get the feel for the technique.
You can see how hard they were working (-:
I am hoping to see some finished tops tomorrow night when I go to do a trunk show for them, but once again the weather is threatening....these all seem to be happening on quilting days.
These are the colors (almost all) for the Modern Quilt Guild challenge. I think I have an idea...
The other day I turned on the iron and left it sitting on my mat, time for a new one! What was I thinking?
I need to get back to my painting. I am not feeling very inspired, maybe because there are no flowers or pretty things to look at except snow right now.
My friend Terry, who is actively hiking the Appalachian trail, sent me this book for my grandchildren. My one son has also done some hiking and there is word that another one may give it a try this year. I think the little boys will love having this read to them! Thank you Terry!
