While I was busy sewing up all my rail fences I was telling The Rooster's sister all about my new found happiness. She also sewed and I was horrified to hear she was going to make quilts after she had explored garment sewing to her satisfaction. Oh, no. She had to start asap because there wasn't going to be enough time for us to do all the quilts we would be planning. So we enrolled in an Irish Chain class and I don't think she got much garment sewing done after that! :^)
The treasure nugget I carried away from this hunt was that monochromatic scraps work wonderfully in quilts especially with a bit of an accent colour.
