Hoppy Quilting Blog — Confessions of a Quilter
Did you ever attend a workshop and create a quilt that forces you to truly see yourself? That was my weekend with Kaffe Fassett.
I am a bit of a control freak. Before beginning my quilts I already have the design complete in my head. The colors, the layout, the overall look is done. All that’s left is for me to bring it to life. So, taking Carol’s workshop on Parisian curves and Improv Quilting was a little bit of a challenge. But, hey, isn’t that why we take classes? To break out of our boxes and try something new!
I can’t think of a much better way to kick off our Christmas in July week than with an amazing Quilting Sit and Sew with the wonderful ladies of our very own Charlotte Quilters Guild! Let me tell you, with all the planning, getting sick, re-planning, packing and moving, I definitely deserved a day of quilting and laughter with my tribe.

Tomorrow is my first Guild Lecture. I get to stand in front of a room full of strangers and talk about my love and passion for Quilting. I get to share with them my strategies on breaking down even the biggest quilting projects to manageable sizes for a more efficient use of our limited time. I even get to share some of my own quilts that I’ve poured my time, love and attention into creating. All of this that I get to do tomorrow… scares the ever-living crap out of me.
My mother used to always say, “Everything has a home.” Even inanimate objects like paper and boxes and pretty, pretty fabric that calls us to touch and play. Yes, even the fabric should have a ‘home.’ Plus, when everything is in its home, it’s easier to find.
