The hotel room came with not-much-of a view,
but the hotel was new and light and airy and I had dinner Friday night with one of my best friends from college who I hadn’t seen in 15 years or so. I showed you my quilt-filled bag on Friday, but looking at it next to my no less than two suitcases and you get an idea about how un-lightly I travelled.
With the magic of some true MacGyver ideas, I managed to hang them all (the quilts, not the luggage) in the classroom. Some old quilts, some newer quilts and one not finished yet (embarrassing).
It was quite nice to revisit some of them. For instance, I did not remember hand quilting this one
And my Christmas quilt that was hiding and only recsurfaced after a rather tiresome 2 day rescue party of one
And this one with the painted half full glass (that was a fun experiment)
And grandson’s old play mat (clean!!)
Oh, yes, it was a colourful sight indeed.
We went through lots of different non-fuzzy-fiddly/nothing-measured blocks one by one,
and for the last few hours the students happily pieced whichever blocks they fancied.
Even the scrappy scraps looked good
and so did the homemade lunch which tasted even better! You can see more pictures from the class here at Haugtussa Quilteklubb.
Thank you, ladies, for a great day! More pictures from the weekend to follow.
