There are certain teachers that I remember. Some I remember fondly because I was good in their subject and others not so fondly because I wasn't. I am sure that Mr. Holden was a fine gentleman but I struggled with some of his math classes. In fact, if I had to do a word problem that started out with "two trains leave Chicago an hour apart at such and such a speed...... I would weep." I now know the answer. It doesn't matter what time they leave or at what speed they are going - they will both be LATE! So, after I struggled with algebra, we went on to two years of geometry. Again, I struggled. But something must have sunk in....I make quilts. I am working on one made up of hexagons. These hexagons come together and make stars. I sit here with graph paper, a protractor and a compass (and an eraser) and make templates for my quilt. So, thank you Mr. Holden.
Not all the pieces are sewn together yet and not all of those that are fit perfectly! Piecing this type of quilt by machine is challenging! I have been really inspired by the quilters that are participating in this QAL (quilt a long). The fabrics I have seen are wonderful.
The next two weeks are going to be quite busy so I am taking a little break. I am still having issues with this modem in the cabin and I need to resolve that. I need to do some blog redecorating and make relish! And of course, there is this quilt!
See you soon! I will do some visiting and catching up!
