Right? It is a good mantra, no doubt, and that is what Augusta Cole, our quilt guild's guest speaker tonight, mentioned quite a few times while sharing her quilts and stories that go along with each of them. She is a snappy scrappy quilter and doggone proud of it, as well should be by the plethora of beautiful quilts shown to us. Augusta, forever a teacher with a thick southern drawl, was quick witted and pinged around the stage while discussing half-square triangles, four-patch squares, and squares in a square; all for the fun of pursuing her passion of quilting (mostly large quilts)...and, hopefully, ours too.
