They grow up so fast…

I had the privilege of handing out candy at Boo on the Square today, in front of My Father’s House Antiques, where Seldom Seen Quilting Studio is housed.  I saw dozens of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a handful of Dorothys, countless princesses, and several pirates.  The ones that tugged at my heartstrings, though, were the Super Heroes.  Little boys truly believe it is up to them to save the world, and they are prepared to don whatever super power is necessary to get the job done.  And who knows? Maybe they are right!

Well, I found it.

That old Coconino High School student-handbook-printed-as-a-pocket-folder that contains the cardboard templates, dog-eared photocopy of two magazine pages, and indecipherable notes in lists that represents my first attempt at quilting!  I can see that the name of the quilt was “Starry Night.”  Looks like I cut apart the pieces from the only copy of the actual pattern that I had.  Layout and instructions are marginally legible in the photocopy.  Hmmm.  It occurs to me that it could be translated into a paper piecing pattern and thus made manageable! We’ll see…

I’m impressed…

Very impressed.  With the organizational mind of Judy Niemeyer.  I am doing a Wedding Star quilt — you’ve seen it, I’m sure.  Wow, has this gal ever thought out the steps.  It’s a masterpiece of preparation — and I’m sure it is going to result in a beautiful quilt with a minimum of hair pulling!  There was/is, however, a misprint on the fabric requirements chart, which meant I had to go back to the store for a few more yards. But no worries:  none of them were out of stock!  Thanks to Debra M. for helping me find them all!
