Evocative reminder

During the workshop I held here a couple of weekends ago, I found myself using offcuts from a quilt I made last year- including a few blocks I abandoned from the final piece, for one reason and another. Showing cut-throughs and getting the really fine slivers in they were helpful – I pinned them up during the class, and over the past week or so these two have been calling to me.

Firstly with a reminder to take a few such things with me next tuesday when I leave to lecture and teach for the Arapahoe County Quilters, where it all started for me way back in jan. 1988 when I attended my first ACQ meeting with a then new neighbour in Denver. I am really looking forward to seeing some old familiar faces besides the several I have kept in touch down the years and am combining this trip with brief family visits to the offsprings in N. Colorado and over in E. Maryland.

Secondly, though I would like to be fiddling along the lines suggested to me in these pinned up little snippets, I really need to focus on completing the single bed quilt for grandson #2 who now qualifies for it having overcome the hurdle of sleeping all night in his own bed. Of course this has not snuck up on me, I have just been procrastinating, but the block construction is well underway, perhaps 25%, and I plan to knock the rest over, today, if I can stand it… but might be forced to include some arrangement of plain blocks without any piecing in them to more quickly build the top!
