Then it was two denim twin quilts for my boys. Done with long strips sewn together with some added boy prints. All tied of course.
Then when el's book came out with the log cabin in a day I felt like I was so liberated being able to tear those strips!I did it up into baby pinks and blues.

Early 80’s, I was looking for a better paying job, but had not been called back on any resumes. A bit depressed on a Saturday morning watching the news, and all of sudden Eleanor’s Quilt in a Day show starts. Her cheery voice and her instructions for the Log Cabin pattern were so fun to watch. So I got my car keys, went to House of Fabrics, (now Joanns), and the lady helped me choose the fabric, and showed me the book. She said there is a class starting Tuesday and Thursday nights this coming week, maybe I should sign up. I did. There was 3 of us, one younger lady and one older lady. We had so much fun. After the first “lesson” we did most of our sewing at home and visited, laughed and looked at fabric mostly. The next week I got an interview with the Elementary School District for school secretary. I went, and the “older” lady from class was the Human Resource head. When I walked in, our eyes locked, and we both just looked away from each other, understanding each other. I got the job (for 19 years), and she told me she didn’t vote, left it to the other secretaries, to be fair, that did the interview.
If you get a strong impulse to do something spur of the moment……do it! It could be the best thing that could happen for you!
