Adventures in Quilting!
I have signed up for a quilting class that has been a great learning experience. I like to sew and now that I have finally learned how to thread my new machine I'm in business. It took me two hours to learn to thread the thing and make a bobbin. That is a whole different story. I do miss the fact that my Mom's old Singer Slantomatic quit working after many repair jobs.
So I signed up for a quilting class and have started making my first quilt. I hope it turns out okay. It is going to be very small but hopefully cute. I chose these reproduction fabrics for the first one. The other morning I had about 45 minutes before I needed to go to lunch with friends so I thought I could start marking my fabric to make half squares and flying geese.(whatever that means) So I carefully measure and mark the fabric so that later I could cut them and start sewing. Well I got home after several hours and all of my marks had disappeared! I had used disappearing ink. Hopefully this will not happen again but it was so funny because I was being super careful with what I was doing because I am trying to learn the technique of quilting.
I have some pictures of my progress that are on my phone but can not get them to upload for my blog. It goes with out saying that I am very new at this. Definitely a work in progress.
Tomorrow is my second class and I still have a little homework to go so ...."sew" long for now.
