A quiltin' we will go
I was thrilled that my teacher thought I had done such a good job on it!!!! :D I matched the seams really well this time around and also matched the blocks without the teacher's help.
I had picked up a lovely poinsettia fabric sometime back during the last workshop and also had some Fat Quarters ( ones, my dh got from the US without me asking him to!).So I wanted to use that for this workshop and the result is this very christmasy Sampler Quilt.
My teacher had incooperated easy ways to make the blocks into this workshop and when she mentioned it was just for me, I was extremely touched!.I must say that her passion for quilting is so infectious that you get so fascinated right from the start and come back totally smitten with the art of quilting!.
She taught me another quilt which is called Quilt as you go quilt which I'm making for M.Right when the workshop was coming to a close, my brand new Brother Machine gave up its ghost! Given my luck, I think I had picked up a machine that was doomed die young ! Anyways, I have a now got another machine, but I havn't seriously started working on it yet.
I learnt quite a bit about fabric too this time , who would have otherwise known that such things as coordinating fabric existed had not the teacher mentioned it. Now shopping for fabric is more fun.( When was it not ???!!!! :P )
This was such a fun workshop , one that I wanted to go on and on and on...... and I can't wait to start the Intermediate workshop.Only thing ,with the mess that is happening in our life just now, I am not sure when I will be able to go back there .Maybe that is a blessing in disguise to practise the basics over and over and keep me in stitches ? hmmmmmm could be ;)
