Mid-Week Quilting Update

The class last Saturday with Julie Lambert was truly inspiring. She is a wonderful quilt artist and a fantastic teacher. The six hours at Seams Sew Easy flew by - filled with great ideas, tips and techniques which I'm looking forward to using in my sewing room real soon!

I also thoroughly enjoyed the Monday night session at church. We learned a technique for a quilt-as-you-go quilt. Amazed at how easy it is. It's a fantastic way to use up the batting scraps I've been saving. Just another tool in my arsenal of using instead of buying.

Last night whilst we watched a movie, I finished the binding on a table topper. To my horror, I discovered a mistake I made in the piecing. Too late - I am not tearing it out. My family is just going to have to learn to live with it as is on the kitchen table. (LOL) Honestly, nobody's going to notice.

Other than that, no real time in the sewing room. Hope to change all that this evening. There are more than a few projects which are vying for my attention: a comfort quilt for a friend at the office, laying out the pieces for the layer cake/Civil Way repro blocks, purses for my daughter's two best friends, etc.......My plan is to determine by Saturday what borders to use for the layer cake pattern as I'm making a drive to Fabric Shack.

Here's to a great Wednesday for all of us!

I would say if you didn't notice your mistake until you were binding the table topper, no one else would even be able to find it! Your classes sound like fun. all quilting is good.
