Today's class was perfect, although after I started the project I thought it would be boring. We made these little bags in the style of a crazy quilt, something I've admired but never thought to do. It was fun, especially because most of it was done with glue! Yeah, glue! I exercised a little creativity with the project and it was fun to watch it emerge. I still need to sew on the handle on one side and then it is ready to go. I see some more future crazy quilt projects. What a great way to use up all those scraps of fabric and trims that I just can't seem to make myself throw away. It would also be easy to embellish with a few beads and embroidery stitches.
Here's a detail of some of the red quilts on display.
Lana, I appreciate your comment as there are a lot of times I just want to close my eyes and find myself where I need to be! Houston's traffic can be wild, but I've found that my main problem is just not knowing where I'm going and what lane to be in at the right time! Although my sister has lived here since 1991 (her hubby is a local guy and knows where everything is) and I've been coming to the Festival for a number of years this is the first year I've felt comfortable with the driving. I think part of my confidence has come from driving in San Antonio during the past few years - we have the worst traffic in the universe and I've learned to deal with it! Traffic - UGH!
