I finished another project: Amy Butler's "Sophia" purse. Its for a class I will be teaching at the shop. There is a LOT of pattern pieces to cut out, but it is SO worth it! The purse is fabulous! It turned out nice and sturdy. Here's a picture of the inside:It's got four nice big pockets inside. I've also been playing around with Helen's "Colourque" technique! What a blast! If you've ever colored in a coloring book before, you can do this. Here's my first attempt:I still have to quilt it, so I'll show an update then. I am also teaching a class about the technique.
In other news, I started a new math (yuck!) class. My husband, aka the smartest person on the planet, has graduate studies in math, so I thought, "I should get him to help me." Big mistake. FOUR hours later, he's still upstairs, making "notes" for me. So I abandoned him and came down here to blog. He claims his mind just works at too high of a level to deal with this "low-level math". Ha! I can barely handle this "low-level math". However, if all the questions were phrased as quilt math problems, I could probably figure it out! :)

oh my goodness, your purse is wonderful. Wish I lived closer so I could take the class. And I want to try out Helen's book. Can't wait to see yours after you have started quilting it. I love coloring.

OOH I love the purse! Wish I could take that class! Helen's technique looks like fun and I ageree I can't wait to see it quilted!

Love the purse, especially the inside fabric, how fun.

Can't wait to see your colored block quilted. I love the way you can't tell. So sneaky.

And...I was going to say something else but now I can't for the life of me remember what it was *Sigh*

My DH is the same way! Everything is a LONG drawn out explanation about how it works! Lots of lists and diagrams to explain whatever! You should have seem the lecture that I got when he taught me how to drive s stick shift! This must be a pilot thing!

Great work and good luck in your class!
