What a whirlwind the past two weeks have been! It started off with our Guild Quilt Retreat. I was too lazy to haul my machine, and I have been doing a bit of reorganizing in my Quilt Cave, so I decided to take a copy paper box chock full of scraps to cut into squares for future scrap quilts. It was great to work on this project but I was a bit taken aback with how much time it took to untangle the mess of strips, starch and press them before I could even make the first cut! As you can see by the picture below, I was able to get a good bit of them cut up though. I had to leave the Retreat early on Sunday so Joanne and I could leave for Columbus for the Bonnie Hunter class. We decided to go down the night before and stay at a seedy inexpensive motel, but that's a whole other story for another day! The Smith Mountain Morning class was great, but a bit too many students for me.
Then, this past Saturday and Sunday, there was another Quilt Retreat, and I brought along my close personal friend, the copy paper box, still chock full of scraps waiting to be cut into blocks in half inch increments ranging from 1.5 inches to 5 inches. Perhaps on another post I will show you how I store them . . . .
