WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I’ve been a quilt slacker this summer but this week I actually started working on some of my hand piecing again.

I’ve even been slowly working on quilting the anchor quilt.

I went to an event last night introducing Quilts of Valor to a group of college students who going to be working us as part of a class project.  It was interesting to go back to basics with quilting.  “This is a quilt.  It has three layers, etc.”  One guy was just mystified that it wasn’t standard for women to pass down quilting knowledge to their daughters and granddaughters.  He kept saying, “But WHY don’t they automatically teach them?”  We can offer to teach all we want but someone has to want to learn.
