Tuesday night was “Quilted Chaos,” the mostly American, very informal, quilt group that meets in the area twice a month. I had to share D’s Süße Sac she brought. She took my class months ago and has made several more bags since. Sorry for the crappy lighting, but I loved the cute Valentine fabric combined with her meticulously pieced half-square triangles. It’s so great to see someone take something you’ve taught them and be inspired enough to go run with it!
Speaking of sharing, Terry sent me a wonderful little package after our swap. She said that although she got a quilt from me, and my mom got a quilt from her, I didn’t get anything (other than that little thing called life I got from my mom). So she sent me a cute tin hand milagro from her trip to Mexico, some fun fabrics from her favorite shop (I already know what I’m doing with the red polka dots) and a piece of gorgeous silk screened fabric she made herself. I was going to be stingy with it, but I just realized that it’s the perfect size to cover a pin-board that I have, so it’s going to be part of my new decor in my sewing room (don’t hold your breath for “after” pics).
