I had an appointment to meet up with a friend at Whittle's yesterday.  Yes, the Whittle's y'all know and love on-line.  But I went to the Mother Ship.  Danger, Will Robinson .....

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.
