The highlight of the day was a Wedge Ruler workshop with Kathy Doughty from Material Obsession. What a bundle of energy and a fountain of so much knowledge. Since being a self-taught quilter I learnt some valuable things from Kathy, like you actually don't need to prewash your fabrics (it help's cutting straight since the fabric has a nice starchiness). One less step in this busy household is very welcomed. I am going to visit Material Obsession the next time I have "Day Release". Now, on to Show & Tell...
