That the staff at Quilted Threads have been asked repeatedly if there is a pattern for the Four Seasons quilt.
"There is no pattern," the staff would say to the customer, "but she's giving a class, she'll teach you how to do it yourself!"
Nope, they wanted a pattern.
Which is too bad. Thirteen ladies had a great time learning how to make their own houses, and I have no doubts they will make their own house quilts, and they'll be much happier with their own versions.
Which reminds me of something else I kept hearing the students say to each other on Saturday, when they needed a bit of help or encouragement. "There aren't any rules," they'd say gleefully.
