Oh my gosh, Jodi was such a nice and funny person. I really enjoyed the class and the time I spent with my mom.
We learned a lot about her method. Plus some great tips for sewing especially for chain piecing. Just look at all those strips waiting to be sewn.
So here are some pictures of both mine and my mom's versions mixed together, because of course I couldn't remember to take pictures all the time.
First you start with awesome chain piecing.
Then you press and it looks like this.
Next you magically cut them up with her special square in a square ruler.
And you get these, which by the way I think the teacher was a little shocked that mine turned out to be the right size.
Here is my mom's block ready to be sewed.
I finished all my pieces, but I didn't like this version.
So I am thinking, this version
What do you think?
Oh yeah and I have a couple great stories from this class. The first is when someone asked me how long I had been married to my husband. I responded with two years, but we have been together for ten years. The lady's response was oh you guys were high school sweet hearts! - Wow now that made me feel good more like the end of college, but thanks for the compliment. It would be nice to be 4 years younger.
Then some mature woman came up to my mom and I and asked if we were mother daughter. My mom replied was "why yes". Then the lady turned to me and said, "Do you think you will become a quilter now?" I smiled and said " I already am", and my mom told her about me and the Sacramento quilt guild. The lady just looked at us very bewildered, like how could this young thing be a quilter. Then she walked away in a state of confusion.
