Happy Father's Day to Me!

Today is Father's Day and the first day of my third session at Empty Spools. I save my pennies all year so that I can go here with my best friend, Cindy. Next year, we may be a foursome. My sister, Barb, is coming for sure (she's already signed up) and another friend from Quincy may come to. Funny thing is, she's not a quilter. She just wants to come and hang out!!

I'll be working on my Storm at Sea block with Wendy Mathson all week. Its going to be so much fun!!!

Wendy Mathson
Storm at Sea "The Wendy Way"

Quilters have loved this pattern for years, intrigued by how straight line piecing gives the illusion of curves. Storm at Sea may be an old favorite, but it doesn't need to be pieced the old-fashioned way! In this class you'll learn my innovative TRIMplate® piecing technique which allows you to make the units quickly and easily, without sacrificing accuracy. This is a trim-after-you-sew method with no templates, no paper piecing, and no bias on the outer edges. Students will work on one or more projects of their choice. We will explore the vast design potential of Storm and Sea, which can be anything from traditional and scrappy to innovative and contemporary.
