Unexpected homework

Next week is my long awaited “retirement” trip – 3 days at the Garden of Quilts at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah. This event is an outdoor quilt show sponsored by Riley Blake Designs. It features classes taught by several of Riley Blake’s designers and is reported to have an outstanding shopportunity for attendees (like I need any more quilty stuff!).

UPS delivered surprise on Thursday. Inside said box was a quilt kit from Riley Blake with instructions to precut all pieces prior to class on Thursday afternoon – per the designer. So, I’ll be spending this rainy Saturday cutting all the pieces for the throw kit. The instructions also stated to bring the box and its entire contents to class. Nope. No room in the suitcase for a bulky box I’ll be placing the bits in marked ziploc bags, organized by step in the process. I’ve done enough table runners by this designer to know the best way for me to work her patterns. Looking forward to her class. The quilt is cute!
