The second part TAW class went well yesterday. It was a chilly day, 18 degrees but we were toasty warm in the basement. I had the students bring fabrics to practice putting in order for TAW quilts in addition to working on their quilts. While they were all busy cutting, unpicking or sewing I chose another red run from my stash. The run at the top is the one I showed a couple days ago with some minor changes. The bottom run is new.
Since the fabrics make a complete loop I wanted to see them with both the light and the dark at the centers of the selection. This gives me a better idea of how the quilt will look.
Today would have been my dad’s 101st birthday. He passed away last year 3 months shy of his 100th b-day. I didn’t get to see him on his 99th 2 yrs. ago because I had just had the radioactive seeding treatment/surgery on my eye 4 days earlier and I was wearing a bulky lead patch over that eye and was supposed to be isolated.
