Scraps, Scraps Everywhere....

After dropping Audrey off at 7:30 for her orchestra competition field trip, I voted and then went to work. I had a Strip Club presentation at 9:00, led our FROG (Fabric Reformation and Organization Group) meeting at 10:30, grabbed a quick bite for lunch, and then had a Liberated Piecing (aka "crumbs" or "mile-a-minute" blocks) class from 2:00 to 4:30. Class was a great success - each student made at least 6 blocks and had a great time doing it. I am slowly and insidiuously luring other quilters over to the Maverick side....(insert evil laugh here)....

After watering all the flowers when I got home, I even made 11 blocks myself. But why doesn't the scrap bucket look any smaller? I think there's unregulated breeding going on....

I hope all of you have a great Mother's Day tomorrow and get to do WHATEVER you want to do!

I love making these blocks and early this year did two quilts from doing them-loved the article on your shop in the latest Quilt Sampler magazine! What a fun shop you have.

Your liberated piecing group looks like they had a lot of fun!

Are most of them going on to make quilts with their blocks or hotpads or?
