Mexican Fiesta, anyone?

Post by lonesta » Thu, 07 Feb 2002 07:31:49



My LQS (ok, so it's 40 mi. away...) is offering a class to make the Mexican
Fiesta quilt, you may have seen it in Keepsake, etc.  They have one made up
and it is SO crazy and fun.  I'm tempted...but when I've tried foundation
paper piecing in the past, I wasn't too happy with it.  Maybe in a class
setting, I'd learn to do it well...but I think that other experience was in
a class, too.  Just wondering if anyone has done this one, what did you
think of it??  (I can't imagine all that piecing without fpp'ing, I'd never
even try...)

        Was this quilt in the latest Keepsake catalogue, Annie?  I'd like to
look it up.

Cheers,
Lynne in Toronto

Honestly...how did you learn the first time?  Did you try to teach yourself?
I spent six hours trying to figure it out and get the hang of it from a
book...and ended up literally crying into my pillow...then took a quilting
class, and after 10 minutes of good instruction, encouragement, and tips, it
became my very best friend.  If the teacher is good, patient, and has a
sense of humor, I say give it a shot.  By the end, you will know once and
for all if paper piecing is your thing, or if paper piecing is just oil to
your water!

I'm one of the ones *sob sob* who hasn't received a Keepsake catalogue yet.
I know I've seen it there (and in others) before.

Who would have known that all I had to do was sob online and the catalogue
would appear!  :-)
It came in the mail yesterday; no, Lynne, Mexican Fiesta is not there.  Will
let you know if I find it somewhere online.

Annie (love that name)-

I'd love to hear more about what you plan to do.  I always think those
Mexican colours are so vibrant and exciting.

BTW...I go to the Lonestar every weekend I'm at Queen's....the bartender
treats me very well... and the salsa and tortillas are NOT bad,
considering we are "up north" and all.

Cheers,

Lynne in Toronto

Lonestar for the salsa!

Oh, yah?????? Well...you're right!

Not TOO many cowboys in Kingston (I suppose there are some in the pen,
but I'm not going there!) but if there WERE any...they'd surely
eventually turn up at a place called the Lonestar, would they
not?(Heheheheh!)

So I check it out every time I am there for school (in town, not at the
bar). I even asked the last time I was in if there were any cowboys
upstairs (in the lounge) and they just looked at me funny!  But I mean,
really,  don't be naming something after Texas unless you are planning
to provide cowboys! Sheesh!

Cheers,

Lynne in Toronto
