Where does the time go? It really is a puzzle!

I hadn't realized I hadn't posted in a week, but things get busy, plus I have been battling a cold. So there it is. My excuse.

Had a great class yesterday teaching the Jigsaw Puzzle Quilt. I knew everyone would need a design wall, so covered up some dark fabric wallboards with flannel backed tablecloth and we had lots of design wall space. Funny thing we noticed, it also brightened up the room a lot.

 It has turned out to be a popular class...I am teaching 2 more classes in the coming weeks.
 The puzzle pieces were so pretty on the walls!

 Diana (on the right) did hers a little differently...can you tell how?
 So did Darlis....she got a really good deal on ebay...some pretty cut strips of fabric...
They were only 1" strips! She said she was only making it 40". I did the math, but let's not tell her. She can  be surprised! Can't wait to see it finished!

Darlis also brought a finished Circle and Spin quilt.

It was a fun class! I can't wait to finish my top! Thank you for not publishing my "reaching" photo. I wasn't even aware that you took this one! See you in a couple of weeks for sampler!

Is Diana's difference that she's orienting the puzzle pieces vertically, rather than horizontally?
Love the smaller scale quilt. She looks so proud of it!
