This is the first time I am using Kaffe Fassett fabrics for a quilt. I love the way they look together...nothing like the fabrics normally used for such a traditional block. When it comes time to put the whole thing together, I will probably use sashing and a pretty large outer border that can be quilted extensively with a cable pattern or something fairly curly. Maybe you guys can tell me what to do when I am ready.
The next few months are very hectic for me between the drama club (our show is in 3 weeks) and the 8th grade trip to Washington, DC that I run. Generally, I get home at 5:30 or 6 for a while now, but I still sit and sew for an hour or so to chill out and unwind. I have a few students who have worked the drama club with me before, so they are my assistant directors. Believe it or not, they are doing a stellar job!! I can actually give extra help during that time and meet with teachers for a few minutes while they are running the show! I am totally impressed by how seriously they are taking this responsibility.
