Quilting class started tonight. We are having workshop style classes where we will have a week or two with 5 different teachers and a few work days in the mix. We are doing paper piecing, hand quilting, appliqué, embroidery, chicken scratch, machine piecing, machine quilting, and binding.
At first, I was so freaking confused. Each teacher showed examples of what we would be doing and briefly how it is done. Then we were off to the fabric store *yippie* My mom and I bought the same fabrics just to make it easy. I picked out some really great fabrics one is a bright pink gingham that will be used for the chicken scratch. It makes me happy. 😀 Another fabric that I’m pretty happy about is a cute tiny strawberry & blossom print on a light blue background.
I’m excited to get started but we won’t be doing any actual quilt work for two weeks so my excitement will have to wait.
