Block featured in Grayscale.
On Tuesday a friend of mine, Renelda Peldunas Harter, and I gave a quilt demonstration. We both have quilt blocks featured in ‘Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol.5’.
We drove about 45 minutes to Winchester, Virginia to the ‘Scrappy Apple’ quilt shop. We each had prepared a talk about our quilt blocks, piecing process and etc. I bought my laptop computer to show color options if someone wondered how the block would look in another color. I had print outs of placement layouts. We were ready. I must admit I hadn’t heard much from locals as to their attendance. I feared that no one would come. Renelda admitted her had thoughts of 4 or so people showing up.
We arrived a few minutes early to set up a felt board and unpack our visual aids. Image our surprise, there were 6 ladies seated and waiting for us! In all we had 15 ladies attend our talk and demo. Questions were evidence of serious interest. The morning was successful for ourselves, the audience and the shop. Gleefully, we treated ourselves to lunch afterward. On that day, life was good!
