City Quilter


   I went to Victoria's trunk show at City Quilter last night.  It was so mesmerizing that I didn't think to take any photos of the event.  You really had to be there to feel the wonders she creates with fabrics and her generosity of spirit.  I have a feeling everyone went home encouraged to start a new quilt!  

But I must confess, I have sunk to a new low.  Spied this 1 1/2" scrap in the CQ classroom trash can.  Well, you know the rest....

  2. Too funny Helen! I wish I could have been there at Victoria's trunk show! I guess I have to be thrilled to have seen the quilts in her home and have one of her little creations in my posession!

  4. Don't worry Helen, no one will know and I won't tell. My friends give me their scraps to put into the doggy beds and I shamelessly take out things that are way too useful. We are obviously made from the same mould.

  5. Ha ha! I do that too. If the scrap is less than an inch wide but still pretty I pin it to my pinboard to admire for a while.

  8. Helen, your gift of fabric came to me today and I am thrilled to be using your strips in my newest blocks. I just love the fabrics you work with.

    Victoria does phenomenal work, doesn't she. And her spirit shines thru in all she does.

  9. That's so funny Helen, that fabric was in there from a class I took part in earlier in the day. It's not my scrap - I too keep every bit of fabric including my selvedges but I left the class early and didn't spot this gem, I'm glad you rescued it!!! :)

    1. That's some coincidence. Well, I wish I knew who to thank for it.
