My only reason for going was to pick up a quilt and Whittle's was a convenient meeting point along my route to Quilt Camp in West Virginia. Yeah, right ... Couldn't have caught the quilt on the fly at McDonald's .... huh?
So I steeled myself to temptation and determined that the only thing I might need to purchase was a yard of dark flannel for a design board since my demo pieces have a white background.
I was just a few miles out of town when I realized that I had left the demo pieces for one of the classes I will be teaching at home. Rather than retrace my steps, I decided a couple of fat quarters could be whipped into a set of demo steps and I knew exactly where I could find said FQs! Oh, I bet you already know where this is going....
I left Whittle's with enough fabric for a whole 'nother quilt! Since it's packed away in the car I don't know exactly how much I got. So for the purpose of reporting my stash situation, I'll just say nothing in, nothing out. I'll update next week.
Actually, I did almost finish a class sample -- just lacks the borders.
|Wink and a Smile|
I will be teaching Wink and a Smile on Monday and Tuesday. Then my pattern Irish Grandmother on Wednesday and Thursday. Since WIFI at Cedar Lake is iffy, at best, I'll post about my classes when I get home.
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.
