Yesterday during our
Sit and Sew Day at 3 Dudes Quilt Shop
we met the nicest lady.
Juliette is from Yorkshire, England
and is here in Arizona on holiday for 3 weeks.
Craving a day to quilt, she stopped in the store
and ended up sharing a spot at our table.
Jeff graciously provided her with a machine and sewing kit
and she was soon working away.
I thought it was wonderful that she was brave enough to
initiate a quilt day in a country that is not her own,
with people she had never met.
But, as she said, and I couldn't agree more
"Quilters are the nicest people,
and it doesn't matter where you are from,
they will always welcome you in to their circle."
When Juliette observed me sewing
rows of Flying Geese with Triangles On A Roll
Sew and Fold paper
she too wanted to give it a try.
With just a few minutes of instruction
she caught on quickly and loved how easy the geese went together.
I noticed she picked out red, white and blue fabric
in honor of her American quilt experience.
(Although, it is her national colors, too!)
Now Juliette will take back to England
a new quilting technique she learned in America.
Denise was also working on
Sew and Fold paper.
You have the option of making
on the very same paper that makes Flying Geese.
*papers come in 5 sizes
Denise will be teaching a
Braid Class at 3 Dudes

Free patterns will be provided for both
