Quilting meme

twist-and-shout.jpgHere is a picture of one of my class samples hanging in the shop where I teach (People, Places, and Quilts).  The pattern is called Do the Twist.

Some of my quilting friends (Gayle, Randi and Jan) have done this on their blogs so I thought I’d play, too.  If you want to join in, follow the instructions at the bottom of the list – and thanks to Jan for the helpful tip.

    I’m completely clueless as to why some of my list is in red! I’m still a big stumbling idiot when it comes to this stuff.

    I don’t know… I confess, I copied and pasted into wordpad to get rid of all formatting and then copied it into the write thing at wordpress and used their formatting stuff…. I swear I’m just blowing up the entire blogroll any day… it’s possessed….
