I'm starting a quilting class tomorrow morning at a nearby fabric store. (I'd link to them, but while they have a great store and a domain name, they have no web presence!)
Yay. All my fabrics are washed and pressed. I'm going to be using the Katy Jump Rope line with a small infusion of Amy Butler and Michael Miller, with a piece of thrifted pillowcase thrown in for good measure. The class is 3 sessions long, and promises to teach me the basics of cutting, sewing 1/4 " seams, and quilting. We'll be making a strippy quilt (the one in the shop looks like the easy lap quilt in Amy Karol's book, only more strippy).
So excited! And so happy that my husband agreed to giving me this time. It's hard to be one parent down for three Saturday mornings in a row. With Saturday morning swimming lessons moved to afternoons starting next week, it just seemed like the perfect time to fit in a little class.
