|Anita's Xcentric/Concentric block quilt|
We enjoyed her company for three days. As the workshop chair, it was my pleasure to be her hostess. She is fun and witty and gracious!

In addition to the presentation at the meeting, many of the members-myself included!- were lucky enough to take classes with Anita.

The class I took was the one for the Xcentric block quilt shown at the top of the page. It's a fun process that will have us all buying striped fabrics to play with!
When I got home, I was playing with a border stripe I had used for something else and got these blocks. They might end up as a bag, if I can find a nice coordinate for a lining.
Now that I'm done with this project, I am hoping to spend an entire weekend sewing. So, don't call me- I won't answer.
I am grateful for:
Winning the boss lottery
Being treated like a rock star by the members of the Yorktowne Quilt Guild
The stomach bug I had Sunday and Monday was relatively minor.
Neither of my boys were hurt seriously in their(separate) accidents.
Some time and the tools to play mad scientist in the studio.
