Serving as a kitchen volunteer for
is proving to take its toll on me this year. I have been at work in the kitchen at 7:30 every day preparing snacks which we serve to 268 youngsters between 9:30 when the first group arrives and 10:55 when the largest group and the oldest children are served. It has been a great week, but it has left me little energy for much else. The other ladies working in the kitchen are wonderful and we all try to be very supportive of each other despite the pressure to keep on schedule. Vacation Bible School
Somehow, I finally managed to stay awake long enough last night to get the label attached to Breaking the Mold, my version of a piecing technique explained in Margaret Miller’s book, Strips That Sizzle. I first saw examples of this technique on Wanda Hanson's blog, Exuberant Color.
I started collecting fabric for this project more than a year ago, and its blocks hung on my design wall for months before I committed to a layout. Unfortunately, the photograph does not show the colors accurately.
I quilted it with a simple meander, and used three different threads.
