Thank you, Joe. I was re-watching the Rock the Block, Album Style segment of the class, because you were right--I "couldn't believe" what we were going to do to those strips next. It got stuck on a 30 second repeat in the part when you were talking about quilting being a path to freedom, ;-), so I hope you don't object to me using your own words. I thought, 'yes! freedom to use all the colors at once, freedom to sew over bulky seams and steam them as flat as possible, freedom to let the lines be all crooked'. It was a blast-off, and I'm on my way! Thanks for the inspiration.
