Getting Ready to Go

The Lancaster quilt show is this weekend, and I'm  scheduled to take a class from Donna Poster.  I've seen Donna several times on Simply Quilts (Alex Anderson's former show) and have always been fascinated by her way of doing things.  The class I've signed up for is called "My Batiks".  The class description says:

  It’s easy to rotary cut and match perfect points – without pinning! We’ll have fun playing with many versions of this technique that can be used in future quilts. From two-color to scraps, it’s always a beautiful quilt!


Making perfect points is not one of my greatest skills, and the thought of doing it without pinning --  well, that just tickles my fancy.  I had decided to use some batik FQ's that I have for the centers, but then DD Mary asked whether it was something I could use for the Saddle Up raffle and the wheels started spinning.  I most certainly have 10 fabrics that I could use in this quilt, and after looking at the fabric requirements for the lap sized quilt, decided to use them.  And I could learn while starting a quilt for the Saddle Up.  You know, sort of killing two birds with one stone, as they say. The sewing machines are provided for this class, and that's something new for me.  Always before I've had to take my own machine,  but for this class we just have to take universal needles and basic sewing supplies. And so now I'm off to the sewing room to start my fabric fondling  searching for the perfect fabrics for this class.

I'm going to that show, too, but am taking just a half-day color class on Thursday morning and then will go to Eleanor Burns' talk on Thursday night. We will be in Lancaster from tomorrow afternoon until Friday afternoon. Should be a great show...I heard AQS shows beat them all!!!
