Here are her class samples.
Gayle is a good teacher!

I cut out all the pieces and managed to make one diamond in class. I made the other five diamonds at home. The conclusion is that I need to practice a whole lot more! (It may look as though these will fit together but they won't.)
Back to my comfort zone: here is my postage stamp WIP. I've decided to make 20 blocks. Three possible sash fabrics are shown, but the final choice will depend on the border fabric and I haven't begun to audition that.

I presented "Every Quilt Tells a Story" for Arlington Hts. AAUW last Monday. There were nine members and two guests. Everyone was attentive and two people took copious notes. Just one person brought a quilt, a lovely Grandmother's Flower Garden. I talked about the importance of labeling--hers had a safety-pinned slip of paper with the provenance.
Now that I've given EQTAS twice I'm more confident and I will seek more gigs. I also want to add to the vintage quilts that I show, which provides a good excuse to go antiquing!
I'm linking up with other quiltmakers for Design Wall Monday at Judy's Patchwork Times .
