These were the corners I trimmed off the connector squares when I was making Devil’s Claw. I took it as a challenge to see if I could use them in some way. So I started sewing, not trimming, just sewing.
And this is what I made with those little snippets – a little zippered bag. I need more practice on the zipper but I’ve heard that practice makes perfect. Ha!
Yes, Laura Boehnke lives in Garner and used to work for Country Threads. She has a husband and 4 boys and she’s a good friend. She lives just down the street from Connie and has what many quilters think of as the perfect job. I would answer that with one word that makes it a very hard job – deadlines!
The Civil War Cruise that Connie is teaching on is sponsored by Stitchin’ Heaven and has been advertised in quilt magazines for months. I had every opportunity to go along but I would much rather stay home and watch Connie’s dog, Hope. I’m not much of a traveler.

Tomorrow is a busy day – window washer, carpet man, and root canal in the afternoon. Ugh!
