Kathy Wagner's miniature workshop

On Friday, the LFQG was treated to an intense, mind boggling lesson in quilter's thriftiness!! We have a whole new way of looking at garbage! Unbelievable, what this talented quilter comes up with from the trimmings of half square triangle blocks!!!!! And, it's not difficult either....well at least if you stick to the trimmings and don't try to make tulip blocks from 3/4" finished triangle squares with 16 units to a tiny tulip!! Lynne and Jacqui were crazy enough to tackle that block and what fun we had LOL. Our minds were whirling with the possibilites. We had a wonderful day. Here is Kathy with the introduction and hints on how to pick up those tiny pieces :-)!
