Let me start at the beginning. It is Friday 29th March which is my Demo Day in store, the month sees me demoing Ruler work quilting, answering questions and setting quilters on their way on their own ruler work quilting adventure using the Westalee Designs Ruler foot and templates.
The First group of the morning often set the tone for the day when I do a Rulerwork demo. I need to get an idea of skill level before we start. There is no point showing them beginner stuff if they are already past that stage and often no point showing the advanced stuff to a group of beginners as it may scare them off. So the first group in were ladies who have done some ruler work quilting but were looking for something more then me stitching sample designs on 12 inch quilting sandwiches even those my sandwiches are 18 inches.
After a hearty chat with a cuppa it was decided I was going to quilt a large quilt sandwich with an all over design. The sandwich ended up being 24 x 42 inches and could easily become a quilted panel as part of a bag project or if you just wanted to quilt a quilt with an all over design.
There was no way I would finish the whole piece in the time allotted for the demo. It means the next group get to see what was started and I continue on with that piece for the rest of the day. Along with me doing some basic beginner's stuff for the the ladies who had come to see ruler work quilt for the first time. By closing time my piece was finished and I had a few workshop ideas to work on.
My piece finished.
Until Next Time
