Since my current sewing involves making more Shoo Fly and Snowball blocks, and you all have seen plenty of that here already, and since this is the sort of thing I think about as I stitch, I thought it would be interesting to see what my quilting readers like to hear/learn/see when someone comes to a guild meeting to speak.
(NOTE: Because blogs are all about pictures, and so far this has none, I interspersed pics of four quilts I made soon after retiring.)
Here are my ideas for the May speaking engagement:
1. Having just finished a year of UFO completions, I thought I could take each one of them (they've all been shared here on the blog) and talk about that project in greater detail.
2. Take quilt tops from my closet that I've finished since retiring and do something like a trunk show of quilt tops.
|My first quilt top of retirement - Snowflakes at Dusk.|
3. Take a load of boxes of my grandmother's sewing/quilting things, most of which are still boxed as she had them, and "explore" the contents.
|A kit, which I rarely buy, called Americana Rose.|
4. Teach something - I don't think I know anything more than most quilters; I am open to ideas here; I don't have a specialty, to my knowledge.
|A controlled scrappy quilt - Sorrento.|
5. Talk about blogging. I am by no means a rock star blogger like some gals are, but I do try to be consistent and provide content that I think will be of interest.
|My first QAL with Humble Quilts called Cheddar and Crackers.|
6. What else?? Am I missing something obvious??
To extend my query a bit further, I will join some linky parties - Let's Bee Social and WIP.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
