If you've followed for a while, then you know that I am a Bonnie Hunter fan; a member of that very large club.
Now, I found Bonnie at very rough quilting time. I was too tightfisted to throw anything away, but the scraps from my quilts was taking over and getting way out of hand.
I kept reading in a blog I followed about the quilter using her Leaders and Enders. Finally, one day I was just too curious and I went to find out what that was. And, that's where I found Bonnie.
Bonnie taught me how to save my scraps so I could use them and then, shared ideas of how and when to use them. And, I was hooked bad.
Here's a previous blog about how much I love my scrap user system.
So, this morning, I knew that I needed to piece a Linus quilt for this month. And, I had no ideas, except to start something from scratch. But, over summer, I knew I had pieced a whole bunch 4 patches, so I went in search and found 70 already pieced and waiting. I reached into the Linus bin of fabrics and pulled out a lavendar. No, don't want lavendar. Next, a piece of red. No, red's not right. Next came out this piece of green and I measured and made sure I had enough and cut it and in about 3 hours, I had this. I will be adding another row of blocks and squaring it up. I don't usually make baby sized Linus quilts. I usually go for teen boy quilts if I can, but this is what came together, so this is what it's going to be.
In different news, I was at a quilt show last weekend and ran into the new owner of the LQS. She taught the one class I've attended. She asked me to bring in the finished quilt from that class. I took that one in and three others. She asked if I'd teach a series of quilting classes. Starting at the basics and building up.
All I have to do is come up with a lesson plan.
Somebody pinch me!
