Quilting classes

OK - so I picked up a couple of quilt patterns/kits at the Houston show last year. I've been quietly organising them but never actually stitching them. So I thought if I took a basic introduction course at Jo-Anns I could figure out what all these fun bits and pieces I've been buying are actually for. So over the last week I've taken two classes and learnt a bit more about what I'm doing.

The first class was a big square which I immediately decided could be a new cushion to replace the one I made way back in the distant mists of time at intermediate school that is now mostly just the seams holding it together as the rest of the fabric has disintergrated under much use by DS. Of course this meant that DD felt left out so I had to make a second square when I got home and will now have two cushions so they can have one each.

The second class was coasters and so now I have two of those and a DD wanting to make more. Which is fine as I have heaps of the fabric.

That is pretty darn cool. I need to take a quilting class someday.

Oh, a class at Jo-Ann's! Brilliant! I need to do that. Love the models in the last photo - too cute!
