One person, who started working with a piece of this god-awful log cabin block, was well on her way to incorporating it into a very cool piece. She's still working on it - so we'll see what develops.
One of the women, who was a new quilter and had only ever worked with patterns, had this piece done by the time she left today. She has promise.
Everybody was busy working with some color limits, and Debbie (front right) was working in black/white/chartreuse and making great progess on it.
(shows up navy blue on my screen, but is really black).
Alaskans are hearty souls, I must say. I had my share of pitching tents and dealing with camping in the first decade of my first marriage. Today, my idea of roughing it is staying at the Hilton. LOL. No, I haven't seen a moose but at home I have deer waltzing up to my front door and standing in my driveway. And haven't seen a bear, but we have those in NJ, too. Happily, I have not encountered any mosquitos. But the people I have encountered are simply wonderful. I am so happy to be here.
