Blocks in the Mail

Don't you just love getting packages in the mail? I do! While I was at the Craftsy Instructor Summit, I met the wonderfully talented, sweet and generous Kate Colleran. You know how when you work with a new block design you can end up with a few orphan blocks?

Well, if you're shooting a Craftsy class like Kate's 3 Blocks, 30 Quilts you can end up with a quilt's worth of spare blocks. There's a huge amount of work that goes on in the background when shooting a class. You've got to have things made up in advance in various stages. These are called step-outs. She offered to pass them along to me so I could quilt them up. When I'm done, I will eventually donate them to my local quilt guilt's charity auction.

My quilting time has been very limited as I am working up in my local Janome dealership while the owner is recovering from some unexpected complications during surgery. You would think that spending the day in a shop full of machines would allow me more time to sew, but now sew much. I am however learning a ton about the workings of a wide variety of machines.

I can't wait until I can get busy quilting these!
