Friendship Star

Good Monday Morning!  It's raining here, turning to snow soon, here in Maryland! Will the lecture get canceled tonight? Will I get home easily?   Will my nose ever stop dripping? 
Yeah. Arrived here and a mild fuzzy head turned into my having a nice big red nose… ALL TUFFY HEADED… yes I meant, "TUFFY"  the "s" gets lost in the clouded head… LOL!

Besides that! We had a great class yesterday! The nice thing about being able to drive to a workshop, is that I can bring  my whole house full of quilts!  We had a lot of fun, pulling out every quilt, talking about what else can we do to PLAY, trying templates, colors and even cutting up orphan blocks.

 
Harriet brought in 6 blocks that she was not happy with, and did not know what to do with them. As we were talking about, "what quilt do you say you'd never make," she said, "A Double Wedding Ring…"So, with that being said….. out came the Rotary Cutter, and Darlene Zimmerman's DWR template…. a jump into the scrap bin… and…



 TADA! She was so pleased with it. 

 ;-)  And... she got it all together… A good day!


I had such a nice day with these ladies. Thanks Friendship Star quilters for having me down! I'm hoping the storm passes quickly and we can still have the lecture tonight… I maybe a bit scratch though! I woke up this morning sounding like a horse…  haha! ( cough cough….)


I'l be nursing my stuffy head all day…. Better go find my bagel before the snow really flies! ;-)

  4. What an amazing idea! I loved this block idea, and it would never in a million years have occurred to me, even after using made fabric. Brilliant!
    Feel better!
