I wasn’t going to be able to help Rae work through her list of schoolwork and get something set up on the longarm so today was about prep work. I pulled fabric, pieced backings and a couple battings for the tops I finished in Georgia. I decided that if I load a Strippie tonight after everyone goes to bed, I can quilt it tomorrow … one little row at a time while she’s working on her assignments. Get her started on one, quilt a row, help her get started on another, quilt a row! Becky gives us a long list of assignments for the day and it’s more work than you‘d think to keep her moving from lesson to lesson!
I also pulled fabric for a few Quick Strippies to take back to GA. They’re good projects to piece when I don’t have as much time and don’t want to leave a project in the middle. Someone asked if I buy my all my fabric for these together and I don’t. When I see a cute print I buy a yard and then I’ll pull two coordinating fabrics from stash. I’ll go ahead and cut these, its another thing I can work on in between helping Rae this week.
Rae is learning to tell time so we took some time and made some clocks. She loves making things!
