Vermont Quilt Festival in the summer of 2009. It was a Let Me Surprise You class with Charlotte Angotti. Charlotte provides the quilt as a mystery, in a pre-cut format with all the fabric included, so all you have to do is show up, sew, and have fun. I took the class with my friends, Carol, Sally, and Sharon. I finished the top within the year, and I got it back from my machine quilter, Terri Bearer, in 2010. And then the poor quilt sat, just needing a binding until yesterday. I'm not sure why I didn't finish it, except that it didn't have a deadline or an intended recipient (and in the interim, I did finish quite a few other projects). I just took the class to have fun and I was quite satisfied with the final product. My friends Pat, Beth, Judi, Toni, Ginny, and Nancy all volunteered to take the quilt off my hands, but I think that I will hold onto it for now.
Happy Birthday Pat! Hope you had a great day! You look so gorgeous in this photo that I stole from your FaceBook page.
Wishing you all sweet dreams as I crawl off to bed,
Pugs and kisses,
