When I look at this quilt, I don't try to remember the pattern name, what fabrics I used or what I intended to make it for. I see the Rowdy Rippers. We had a beginning quilting class that coined the name Rowdy Rippers. They earned it. :) We met once per month for around 2 years. We started out with the basic beginning quilting classes, then it turned into "we want to learn to do this....teach us to do that...." For me, it was a great excuse to keep spending time with this awesome group of students.
We had one gentleman in the class, and bless his heart, he sat smiling through discussions ranging from PMS to hormones. He sat through heaters and air conditioners being turned up and down because of hot flashes. He sat through being called V's hubs, because he always helped her carry things and pick out fabric.
This class was also a great excuse to EAT. We had many potlucks and way too much food over those 2 years.
So, if any of my Rowdy Rippers are reading---I MISS YOU!!!!!!
The wind was blowing when we took this pic.....it really isn't that wonky! LOL
P.S. This is UFO finish number 14 this year! Woo Hoo!
