Well, maybe just one more quilt

Even though I have summed up and signed off for 2010, I got my hands on a fat quarter stack of Momo's "It's a Hoot" and a charm pack of "Just Wing It" by the same designer and a quilt instantly designed itself in my head.

I had to sew it IMMEDIATELY. You know when you get into the flow and can't stop until the thing is done?

I am hoping to teach some classes next year at Amitie (the happiest place of them all) and one idea is to have a class aimed at sewists who don't want to dwell on perfect points and following rules. This would be a class aimed at people who want to learn the tricks of fast and furious (but still rather gorgeous) quilt making.

Patchwork where your mistakes don't get re-done. They get hidden away or simply embraced. Besides, who will ever actually notice???


This is the quilt I thought I'd teach. Would you be interested in a class like that?

Great philosophy, Andi! Love your colorful quilt - glad you had to go with the flow. I think this is a good pattern / recipe to make out of different lines and color combos. A great quilt to learn enjoying the process and see how it grows into a quilt...
