Quilting Class: Week 9

We met on Tuesday night this week because Tulip and I were going to the Wildflower meeting on Monday night.  We are starting our last quilt, one that has pieced tulips, just in time for April.

When does a person cease to be a student and become a quilter?  It is hard to know for sure, but I know all my students are making progress.  I knew Rose had morphed into a true quilter recently when we had dinner together at a beautiful Italian restaurant.   When the server brought our napkins, Rose exclaimed, "Look!  That would be a great quilt pattern!"  Yep, Rose, you have been addicted to quilting.  That is my goal for all my students, that they will see quilts in everything.

When this class started in January, the students arrived in the cold dark.  Thanks to daylight savings time, it was still light when we started this week.  It was a productive night in many ways.

This class is made possible by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts.  Thanks!
