Diana has graciously agreed to teach a binding class and I will be the first to sign up for that! I have to say I'm surprised at the number of people wanting in on these classes. I thought I was the only one needing help.:

  1. Mary

Hi Mary,

I sent you a message privately, but wanted to let everyone else know that I finally got my check in the mail yesterday.  Hopefully you will have it by Saturday or Monday. I'm also bringing as many dozen fresh eggs as my girls will lay!! I'm planning on about 5 dozen.  If that is not enough, let me know.

Also,

What is everyone doing as far as their block?  Ohio's flower is a carnation which seems so boring to do a block on.  Any good ideas?

I was  going to do PA's flower but couldn't find a pattern I liked so I picked a flower I love that is in my garden and am making that flower.  I don't think it needs to be one specific flower.  Just pick one you like.  I got a couple sets of patterns from Jeanne R. Prue's site.  But I bet if you put flower quilt patterns into your search engine many suggestions would come up.  Good luck and have fun!

Mary, put me down for the quilt-as-you-go class please. I have been wanting to learn how to put pre-quilted blocks together for awhile.

Mary --- I just had a call from Maria Holloway.  Apparently she forgot to take the tentative reservation that I had put on her retreat book for May out.  I explained what had happened and she was very gracious.  Anyhow - I mentioned that you guys were having a retreat up there in June.  If you will contact her, she would love to have you all come and visit at her quaint shop over in Cosby.  She will do a demo or two and have door prizes for you.  Plus, as Diana will tell you, there is a great restaurant just down the road from her shop.

I agree with Barb, that shop sounds like fun!
