Yesterday I taught my Patchwork Math class at In Between Stitches. The class that Alex Anderson was popping in to observe. Well, the reason for her observation was to see how my class would fit in as a segment on The Quilt Show! I'm going to be on THE QUILT SHOW! Now ask me, did I have the presence of mind to take a picture of Alex Anderson in my class?? I was so caught up in my own excited terror, that I totally forgot.
The girls in the class were fabulous! They just went along with the flow of the class like quilting pros. They made beautiful components and started arranging and rearranging them on the design walls.
They were brave enough to work with directional fabrics and passed the test with flying colors.
It was so much fun to look around the room at all of the color choices.
....to traditional fabrics.
Arranging the different components at the end of the day is always a fun time during the class. I think the girls surprised themselves when they ended up with at least 25 completed components.
Candace joined in for a repeat performance and refresher course, and continued to work with her Geisha girl blocks.
I want to thank all everyone that left me comments on my last post. YOU provided me with so much moral support and helped me believe in my abilities. I received many private emails, phone calls, and e-cards full of good wishes. I feel that all of YOU have made this possible and I can't express my thanks enough. So many have supported me along my quilting journey, and I appreciate each and every one of you.
Now to the logistics. The taping for my segment for The Quilt Show is going to be on June 29th at the San Jose Quilt Museum. The program won't air on-line until 2015! I have a list of things to complete before the taping......such as a new quilt design using only the components in the book. Oh this is going to be a fun and busy next few months. My sister Gail is going to be pressed into service.....so are some of you reading this right now!
I'm off the a bridal shower today and I should arrive home just in time to cheer my Niners to victory in the football playoff game this afternoon. Now that I'm totally "spent" from the excitement of the last few days, it's time for me to sign off and start planning.
