Today was our second class with Kellie from Don’t Look Now. For all you Aussies, if you can do a class with her, do it!!! It was great to have this second chance to ask her questions and practice her techniques again. We all enjoyed it so much. It was also so cool to see what the other ladies had done between last classes as well. We all had different color choices and projects, but they were all just as gorgeous as each other!
I worked on this one, which is going to be for Elizabeth:
It’s a bit wrinkled from folding up… but still very cute don’t you think? It is a section of Kellie’s Rainbow Lollipops quilt. I was going to do two kitties, but this turned out big enough – maybe I’ll have to tackle the whole quilt next!
Kellie did some more sample quilting for us:
I started quilting the tree block from last class, but had a lot of trouble. I think Nina needs a service, hopefully that will help, but I am also wondering if it was the background fabric I chose. It’s the cream on white I got from the souk, and the needle had trouble going through the paint. It seemed to work better on the plain homespun… I hope this isn’t the case because the kitty has the same background. Nina was skipping stitches when I hit the painted bits… oh well, we shall see. I think I will need to plan a trip to Bendigo soon to get her serviced.
All in all, it was another great day, and I’m so glad I signed up for this class. I have learned so much. Now I just need to keep practicing!!! Thank you Kellie for coming all the way to Ballarat to teach us 🙂
