3 Day Workshop Prep

In a few weeks I will be attending a 3 day workshop. I don’t usually do workshops, but will I not only learn some new techniques, but it will be a get-away and I am sure to meet some wonderful quilters.

Paws for Comfort

There is some prep so I thought I’d better do it now, because when I get back from the Quilt & Sew-In next week, I might not have the energy to tackle it! After searching through my stash I chose a cute dog and cat fabric that I used when I designed the Paws for Comfort quilt. Cutting instructions for 26 blocks were sent and the cutting is to be done prior to the workshop. It was suggested we label zip lock bags and have one for each block. I do at times use zip lock bags, but I did not want to deal with 26 of them, so…

Notebook I

A notebook with plastic protectors! I have the picture and cutting instructions for each block in the front of a protector and the fabric for that block behind the pattern. I can just flip through the book – easy and organized! For safety, I put a large hair elastic around the notebook – should it be turned upside down, the pieces won’t all come tumbling out of the notebook.

Notebook II

I’ll also have some blank sheets so I can take notes as the old memory is not so dependable any more. I’ve completed all the cutting  and it feels grand to be prepared weeks ahead of time! I’m really excited to be doing so much fun sewing in the next few weeks!
