Butter Charms & Jelly

Yeah, I know it’s WiP Wednesday, but today’s action was all quilty and the knitting doesn’t get rolling until tonight.

Mom and I went over to Quilters Corner in Finleyville for a Butter Charm & Jelly class. It’s a pattern made for Moda’s Jelly Roll and Charm Pack stuff. I had several Jelly Rolls in my stash, so it was easy to be ready to go.

We were right on time for class, but weren’t quite ready to sew at the 10:30 am start time. Because the classroom was locked until about 5-10 minutes before class. Oh well. I still got all 12 of my blocks finished in time.

I have a second Jelly Roll in this fabric line and almost a full Charm Pack of the fabric, so I think I may figure out how many more blocks I can make to enlarge the quilt and still have enough fabric. Lisa? Are you proud of me? :)

The class was OK. Everyone flipped over my Pooh bag (no time for pics. I’ll photograph some time soon) and the teacher of my class seems to think that I’m going to drop off the pattern so she can teach the class. As I said to my mom on the way out, I’d be happy to teach the class if someone asked me to, but I don’t know about just handing over the pattern. And I certainly wouldn’t hand over Louise’s tips and tricks. I’ve made three of the bags and could probably handle teaching the class. We shall see.

Mom and I stopped at Kohls on the way home and I got a new pair of jeans with her old fart discount (She’s not old, I just give her a hard time because she loves to use her senior citizen discount ... it was 15% today only at Kohls). Now I need to make some quick decisions and get my act together to head up to Hurricane Knitters TONIGHT at the Waterworks Barnes & Noble. Catch you later!

Love the quilt. I'm doing the charms on Holly Jolly. They are fun! Glad to see quilting on your blog. I hope the class/store was O.K. Hang on to your intellectual property!

Love those colors!
I can't believe someone thought you were just going to hand over your original pattern. NO WAY dude. Hold on tight. ;)
Have fun at knit night.

Some people just have a lot of nerve! If she asks you for the pattern, you can tell her it's a class you teach so you really can't share it--that ought to do it. After all, you didn't learn how to do it for free--why give it away?
And your quilt looks great. I need to finish up the house stuff so I can start quilting again!
