You might remember...this candle mat was a kit I purchased at Emily's Country Cottage in Bemidji, Minnesota. Emily's instructions included hand piecing...I don't enjoy hand piecing much so I had machine pieced it using "Y" seams. Our local quilt shop has the same fabrics...yep...you guessed it...several people wanted to make one. My dilemma was...how do I credit Emily for her creativity...and use her ideas to teach a piecing skill? I struggled with it...and decided to charge the participants in the class a fee to be paid to Emily...whew! Now I could teach the class and sleep at night!
Busy QBees...we could care less about the game!
Fussy cutting takes a lot of concentration!
Preparing for those "Y" seams.
"It's not as hard as it looks!"
Accuracy is everything!
A new version...we love individuality! Hee-hee!
Nearly done...and smiling!
Eight "Y" seams...lots to smile about!
Standing tall and all smiles!
You know you've had a good time when you leave with a beautiful smile like this one.
Thank you Emily for inspiring a great Super Bowl Sunday! I know we had a better day than the Vikings! Maybe they should take up dillydallying in the off season. ;-)
