Here's the story on this flimsy:
- A couple of years ago when the Renegades were off at a quilting retreat, the topic of paper piecing arose. People either did or did not like paper piecing. There wasn't much in the way of middle ground. I declared, "I'd rather give a cat a bath than paper piece."
- This month, a particularly talented member of our Guild was Queen Bee. She gave each of us some arcs for paper piecing and some fabric for the alternate spokes. We were to add whatever else we wanted. Generous Sarah also gave us additional arcs, as well as patterns for centers and shoulders. She said we could make arcs for ourselves, but please not to share the pattern as yet.
- I chuckled and tried to think who I could get to do that paper piecing for me and asked all my friends who had dirty cats if they would do it.
- Not really.
- I made Sarah's arcs; they were not only remarkably easy but actually fun!
- I made more and more arcs. After awhile Joe said, "What are you going to do with all those?"
- I was stuck for an answer. So he created a design.
- I bought cerise fabric. I made mylar patterns for centers and arcs.
This weekend was the Guild autumn weekend retreat. I took all of my arcs, my patterns, my white fabric, my cerise, and Joe's design.
And now *Gato Limpio! is a flimsy!
