20151015-194452.jpgI sent Noreen home with a cutting list last week, and her husband, Mr D, who does all her cutting did a sterling job and Noreen was able to try her hand at foundation piecing, completing the first quarter of a compass for her new quilt.

20151015-194649.jpgAdrienne and I went through all her blocks to make sure they are all done – just a couple missing so she cut out in class.

    I almost feel “shell shocked” by all that creativity!!!! Sue 3’s quilt…..well, words fail me!!! It has such a vintage vibe with a contemporary approach——gorgeous!!! Carylin’s applique is awesome!!! All those little pieces you all put together……..sigh……..AMAZING!!!! I so love the contrast to the world I seem to float in……which revolves around the use of machines (for piecing and quilting). Hand work exudes peacefulness and serenity. Thanks so much for posting these and I’m so thankful for our paths crossing these many months ago!!!!! Hugs to all……………………….(with much admiration!!!!)
