On Saturday I went to the machine quilting class run by Ballarat Patchwork and had a GREAT day! It was well worth going to – I picked up a lot of handy hints and tips. And it was fun!! Much better than watching the Grand Final.. hee hee… although we did finish in plenty of time to watch the end.. poor Saints….
Ok, enough about footy, back to quilting. We had to make a nine patch to practice on, and I of course made mine blue. I think it will make a nice table topper. I traced those patterns with a blue washout pen using Pam’s templates.. nice ones. We also had a calico sampler which we played on:
I also bought a few things… 🙂 We all bought a can of basting spray, and I got one quilting template and two patterns:
I couldn’t resist that cute teddy/blanky pattern by Melly & Me. I also bought some of the Minky fabric to make it with – it is soooooo soft! I can’t wait to make it! A friend of mine has the pattern as well, so maybe we will motivate each other to sew it up soon. I bought the doll pattern for Elizabeth – she is on a doll making spree! She has been making her own patterns up and I thought it might be nice for her to have a pattern to follow for a change. She was quite pleased.
Anyway, I had a great time at class. It is so much fun to get together with other women and learn new things. Must do it more often! Have a great week everyone!
