First quilting class

Tonight I had my first of 6 quilting classes. I really enjoyed it and it went by really fast. It was three hours long but felt like one hour. I learned how to cut and measure properly and how to make sure I'm sewing 1/4" seams. I did one square that has three long rectangular pieces and one with 9 square pieces. The 9 square piece is done but I didn't take a picture of it.
I learned some really cool techniques and that I don't have to do some of the things I thought were necessary when quilting. Not doing those things is a huge time saver!

I'll hopefully be taking pictures each week to share my progress.

Great job! looking forward to next weeks installment.

I did my first class a year ago and just LOVE making quilts, learning new techniques and being creative with fabric. We are so lucky in this area to have some great fabric shops.
