Feels like May has just been a crazy month...looking forward to lots of time in the quilt studio in June!
Today I cut some fun/ugly pieces of fabric for Tonya at Unruley Quilter. When you look at your own stash it is difficult to find "ugly" fabric...I mean at some point I bought it or at least accepted it, washed it and folded it! So mainly I looked for things I didn't think she had...like cat in the hat fabric.
I also came across a pillowcase of blocks that had been on the missing list since out last move. (It was in the basket with backing fabrics.) Anyway, this very small antique liberated block was in the case. It is a favorite of mine that I had almost forgotten about!
The talk Friday on colonial quilts to the 4th grade class went well. They loved their blue and white quilt and were all very careful about signing their names. I heard lots of stories about quilts that they had in their families. All fun. Who knows next year I may even dress up in Colonial costume...tough to be the only one there in jeans (to talk about modern indigo) Also I followed Benjamin Franklin on the agenda - always a tough act to follow!
On a totally different note...tonight I went to a cookout at a friends and got to meet her brood of chickens. She has had them less than a year but is getting lots of eggs from the older ones. Wish I lived in an area I could keep some!
