The Quilter's Studio in longmont has a new saturday sampler ... the rules are basically the same as the past few samplers...
sign up and pay a $5 fee

have the assignment from the previous month completed
show your work
watch the demonstration and
receive the assignment for the next month, along with some of the fabric
the pattern this time is Old School by Quilt Soup...
Auntia and i had to buy two of these patterns to participate ... which is kind of silly ... especially since i wouldn't have purchased even one cuz it's ... well ... asymmetrical for crying out loud ... shudder
for the first month, we were handed two fat quarters in our choice of colorways - brights or neutrals shudder...
i didn't like either one ... both of the focus fabrics looked
like old lady scarves dated to me ... so i shocked everyone and chose neutrals...
bwah ha ha!!!
at the first meeting the Neutrals were handed a fat quarter of a solid cream and a fat quarter of a brown floral fabric and told to make the center of the quilt...
do whatever you want!
leave it plain!
applique and piece it!
try broiderie perse!
do what ever you want!
let your imaginations run free!!!
i came up with this...
be free little puffs!!! dance in the wind!!!
sigh ... it goes without saying i was the only one of the Neutrals who saw dandelion puffs in the fabric ... which is kinda strange since the fabric line is Dandelion Daydream by Maywood Studio
