Oh you people make me laugh! Yes, I guess we quilters all think alike! Ask a quilter if she wakes up seeing stars and she will add the alternate blocks to the picture as well! (Referring to my last post). It seems we all think in geometric shapes. Math has never been my strong suit. When I took geometry in high school I remember my teacher telling me that I had a creative way of finding solutions. At the time I took it as a compliment. Now I realize he meant that I took the long way around to find the answer. In other words, I am slow! This probably still holds true for me today. But I do have fun!
Two of my favorite bloggers commented yesterday that they use cardboard templates and sew by hand. Luckily neither of them were insulted by my flippant comments. In fact one reason I love these two ladies is their sense of humor AND they laugh at me! We who think of ourselves as comedic love to be surrounded by people who laugh at our jokes! I know that sometimes I am not as funny as I try to be, but I can't stop myself. It's the way I was raised. You should meet my Dad!
Back to those two bloggers I mentioned: I met them on line when they each made my little tree pattern at Christmas.
Annamiek is from the Netherlands. You should visit her blog and see the funny correspondence she recently received from Marcus Fabrics. She really had me giggling!
Lea lives in Japan. The darling heart block pictured here is from Lea. She makes the neatest primitive quilts. She has such a joyful spirit. you will enjoy her work and her happy heart!
Blogging has opened up doors all over the world and we are fortunate indeed to find sisters that share our interests and encourage us in our endeavors. Really, I haven't had this many girl friends since high school! So ladies, if you want to use cardboard templates, you do whatever makes you happy. Thanks for stopping by!
