I love sewing scraps together. The classes were about 12 people, and only 5 took the same two courses. I was amazed at the work of the other people in the class and all I learned from them. Victoria helped each person with their work individually. We worked from 8:30 in the morning, stopped for lunch and dinner, and sewed more until 9 or 9:30. I had to endure a couple of migraines and did not sleep well, but was able to keep going.
In the first class, I had brought a lot of scrap fabric I had sewn together in pieces about 6 x 10. Then, I joined them together and was inspired by a small quilt in the book. I added triangle applique, curved piecing, and flying geese- learning new techniques. I bought some polka dot fabric from a vendor at the Quilt Show there (Quilters Corner) and used that for the borders. I am going to make a new entry for the Lemoyne class.
