I love to go to workshops, but I rarely get to go as a student.  Mostly I am the instructor/teacher/leader.  When I saw that Hettie's Patch were have a weekend with Sue Daley and the Quilted Crow girls I put my name down straight away.  I could not do the whole 3 days, but did line up for one day.

1" Clamshells all lined up
Sue Daley was doing English Paper Pieced clamshell purse.  I could not see that I would ever make this into a purse, so decided to just make the pieces, and later on turn them into a mini quilt.  I guess I always knew how to make these little shapes, but it was nice to join the class as I had never actually done them before.

These pieces all came from the applique scrap bags that I was thinking of throwing out a while back.  Silly me!  I spent a couple of hours going through the bags and picking out pieces around 2" and ironing them.  I had trouble finding enough light colours.

I sent the photo to my daughter at the end of the day and her comment ?  "Is that all you did - too much gabbing"  well, it all takes time, dosn't it? and you do have to talk and get coffee and there is a lunch break.....and the Trunk Show
one of Sue's quilts

you can see some more photos of the Trunk Show on Hettie's facebook page.
