I am in the process of arranging my work and always organizing.
So I will share some of it here.
This is a coil basket and a Fast Star quilt. Fast Stars are often used by Native American plains Indians for give-a-ways.

The fast star quilt is beautiful but it doesn't look fast to me- the basket is awesome too!

The fast star really is fast, it can be doe in a day from start to finish. With machine quilting an easy day. I have not taught it for a long time but when I did it was a 6 hour workshop, most students would be at least half done by the end of the day, I think class is both good and slows you down.
