Quilting Class 2014

For a while now, I've had computer trouble, Internet trouble, and winter trouble, so I haven't been blogging much.  Thank you to those who have missed it, but some things are just bigger than me.  Hopefully, after many hours of repair work, everything is working again, at least, for now.

In the meantime, my winter quilting class has started, and is off to a great start.  I'm thankful for my students who have braved the cold nights to get to class.

This year, I have three students who are very different in some ways but all are in love with quilts.  Their class names are Dolly Madison, Roslyn Carter, and Jackie Kennedy.

We have learned shortcuts on making half-square triangles that are in this first quilt.  We have talked a lot about quilting tools and how different it was back in the day when some of the world's best quilts were created.  Stay tuned; it is going to be a fun and inspirational class!

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