This week I have lots of pictures to share with you. My fellow classmates are making some amazing quilts. I can’t wait to see them next class time when they’ll all be quilted.
Without further ado, here they are so far.
The last one is mine and it’s turning out way better than I had hoped. I wasn’t too excited about my fabric choices after the first couple of weeks but once the borders were sewn on I decided it was really very pretty. It’s impossible to show in a picture but the white fabric is a white on white leaf design. The backing will be a different but similar design.
This week was fun because it was the closest any of us has been to a real live quilting “bee.” We all learned together and helped each other get ready for quilting.
The bummer for me at this point is realizing that my little Minnie sewing machine may really not be up to this challenge of quilting. I think I will be able to accomplish this crib size quilt on it but if I wanted to do anything larger the rolled up portions of the quilt might not fit through the machine.
Only one more class time left! We’re off next week for Mother’s Day so I have plenty of time to get my homework done. And of course to dream up new projects. Soon, I’ll be a beginner no more!
