My lack of blogging definitely doesn’t mean I have lack of content for blogging (my blog in my head is WAY better than this one!).
Yesterday I finished a four week quilting class at Ruth’s Stitchery (mine and my mom’s favorite quilt store).
I meant to show each square every week but I forgot, so here’s my last month of quilting projects. Yesterday our teacher taught us all the steps to finish the table runner and now that’s all I have to do.
This square is hand stitched. It’s the first time I really hand stitched something that wasn’t needlework. It was a fairly easy square- I don’t know if I’d do a whole quilt this way.
This week we learned applique. I also hadn’t done this, but I actually liked it. We didn’t learn how to machine applique- it was all done by hand. I still have to finish the flower- I went to this class the week the cold knocked me out.
Machine quilting! This was the quickest class. Even though I took the longest to cut (I made a quilt with my grandma in high school and was too careless in cutting and have been paranoid about it since) I was one of the first ones done. This is the kind of quilting I’ve done so it was good to learn some real techniques.
This week we learned to hand quilt which was my main motivation for taking the class. Here is the picture of my border and backing fabric with the three pieces. The applique piece will be the center square of the table runner.
I have a week to finish the project so I should be posting updates soon!
