I spent the evening tonight in quilt class--remember the Kaye England Progressive Patchwork class with the really cute suitcase full of fat quarters? Yep, that one! Tonight we made this block:
I still have to make the smaller version, but at least I managed to get this one done despite various distractions and breaks for some quality girl chit chat.
Aren't these classy? I found these bunnies at Bearpaws & Hollyhocks tonight. (If you click on the link, you can see Lindy kissing a llama at Kaye England's Quilt College! Classy behavior at college, yes?!)
I also found a sheep pulling an apple cart. (No llamas though.)
I took the Hats quilt to show Lindy and ended up on the shop roster to teach a class in May based on the quilt. I have ideas for making smaller versions (fewer blocks, not smaller blocks) and using a slightly different technique. I know I was a little daunted by the size of the finished quilt, but the hats are SOOOO much fun I'd like to be able to show other quilters how to make them too, without feeling like they're committed to a HUGE bed quilt--unless they want one, of course!
And, as it turns out, I'm also on the Bearpaws & Hollyhocks class schedule to teach in June--I just haven't figured out what that will be yet, although I know I want it to be red, white, and blue with a 4th of July flavor.
And speaking of quilt classes, for those of you in the Sacramento area, if you planned to sign up for the Spring! class and haven't gotten around to it yet, sign up soon. It's only a week and a half away and there aren't many spaces left--but I'd love to see you there!
Finally, I'll leave you with this bit of class--'cause you know I'm all about being classy, right?! When I got home tonight, I found a wad of toilet paper sticking out of my pant leg. Classy, yes?! What I'd like to know is how did it get there and how long was it there? I simply can't imagine! It's not like you can accidentally mistake your pant leg for the toilet bowl or anything. Dryer sheets--I've had those stuck in my pants before and that's quite understandable, but toilet paper? ARGH!
