A hasty happy decision :-)

P1040024After Sue's lecture on Thursday evening my head was spinning and I could not sleep :-)

I knew there were a few vacant spots in her Friday class the day after, on the sampler quilt,
and with help from Merete I got signed up Friday morning, and was out of the house in 15 minutes - that must be a record for dressing nice and packing for a class!
I remembered all but the rotary cutter, which I made without, and had a chance to borrow from Merete if I needed one :-)

We learned very nice tricks for the glue pen Sue uses, and even if English Paper Piecing has not been my thing up until now, I now am convinced to use it much more :-)
The circular rotating cutting mat is clever, as is the thin thread and the use of straw needles.

I had to try the techniques for hexagons the minute I came home, and if you are an observant reader you already know I have made a few of these hexagon flowers by now, as well as started the quilt It Takes Two. The sampler, on the other hand, is still a sleeping project or Wisp.
My head is still spinning ;-)

Sue is full of great tips. I love paper piecing it is really portable, I am making Sue's red and white quilt at the moment.
