I just love saying that! 😀

For our VMQG Opportunity Quilt we are making blocks that have squares or rectangles inside of other squares or rectangles.

The exact rules are here.  We must have a ring of white.  I chose to use Azure, Red and Oasis as my other colors.  These are the two I made today.

Once upon a time..I had an unbelievably wonderful evening listening to the charming Mr. Pee-wee Herman speak to the audience after appearing in The Pee-wee Herman Show (awesome!) at the Nokia Theater, Los Angeles.

Pee-wee Herman 1-16-10 Nokia Theater LA

Then, as he took questions from the audience….

he stood THIS CLOSE to us.

We were THIS Close to Mr. Herman!!

He turned around and stood next to us, but I didn’t want to blind him by taking a photo.

I know that I had the opportunity to stand up and tell him that from the second I saw him on the New Year’s Eve Comedy HBO special in 1980 or so, I have watched everything in which he has ever appeared.

I wanted to speak up and thank him for all the joy he brought and continues to bring to our lives.  But, it was all I could do not to burst into tears as he stood next to us.  I was SO HAPPY.  I was THAT CLOSE to Pee-wee!!

So instead… I did this…..

What can I say?  My first quilt ever to be displayed is dedicated to Mr. Pee-wee Herman. It’s part of the “Quilts Go Modern” exhibit at the California Oil Museum in Santa Paula, CA. It’s based on Gwen Marston’s quilt, “Exquisite” from her book,  “Liberated Quiltmaking”

I know you are, but what am I? quilting detail

I apologize for the dark photos.  I plan to visit it again and take better pics!

Thanks for looking 🙂
