did I mention that? Yah, sorry I'm a broken record.
Excellent workshop today, meet fun new people and used strange and "out of the box" scraps for making houses. I ended up making 7 and I think for my Halloween theme wall hanging I'm going to use 4 and then use the rest in another project. I took a few fun pictures, but here are my favorite:
Bonnie wrapped up in her Scrappy Houses Quilt:
Now look at some of the wonderful houses made by students:
Here are mine:
You can see which 4 I'm using, once I square them up. This was a very fun, very quick block to do.
Spoke to a fellow guild member and groupie (though she is a wee bit more dedicated than me) whom I begged for assistance to start my own scrap organization project. Hopefully we can get together in coming weeks and play with my stash and scraps!
Oh, and I did finish ALL 150 4 patches of my Orange Crush and pressed them. I'm ready for step 2. I showed Bonnie my fabrics and blocks today and by her response, I'm much MORE excited to get this done. She was like ooooooo ahhhhhh....good choice in colors! YAH!! So, she'll won't have the next clue til towards the end of the week --she is got to unpack and do family/house things :)
It was such a pleasure to meet her and talk to her, pick her brain for ideas and feel like a new direction of creativity in my own quilting being developed.
I have another busy week, but at least it ends with 4 days off of work with visiting friends and pirates in Baltimore next weekend. Just need one day to catch up on my sleep :)
