Class #3

Well, a few short hours (OK, 7 hours to be exact) and our third class will begin.  I absolutely love it.  I surprise myself with how much I look forward to Tuesdays.   Even when I have finished my homework for the week, I find myself constantly wandering into the sewing room to find something to do.  I think I might make another quilt in the same pattern, but with different fabric, at the same time.

I made a new ironing board cover Sunday.  The old one was too thin and getting worn.  The new one is bright and cheery and much thicker and sturdier. 

Here's the OLD.....

                         and Here's the NEW!!!


By the way, during my classes, I have learned that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.  Quilting techniques are very different than other sewing techniques.  You pin, cut and sew seams differently.  It's great to learn something new....

More later on today's class!

Happy Quilting :),

Love the ironing board cover - what a cute use of some of your extra fabric! Are you going to hand stitch around the top of the quilt blocks when you finish the top of the throw? Let me know if you want some help, I think I would like working on finishing the top with you.

I haven't decided exactly how I plan to finish the quilt top, but I would love some help.
