Yesterday I found the most fabulous fabric for the borders on my baby quilt sampler. I started it when a friend of mine, Laura, asked me to teach a basic baby quilt class that had gotten cancelled at the local quilt shop.
The more I look at the class components, though, the more I think this needs to be a beginning quilt class, though. Neither my friend, nor her friend, know how to quilt, so even the basic 9 patch, which is what this other quilt is, are going to be that easy. And who wants to go around in life not knowing how to do a half square triangle? 😉
So, I talked to Laura today and she reluctantly agreed to a longer class schedule for a sampler class. I will help her get the 9 patch baby quilt completed if and when she still wants to do that project, but since she said she wanted to cover the basics of quilting, I really think the sampler will accomplish what she’s looking for in the long run.
Now, I am compelled to finish this project, then I can focus on my next round of homework! Let’s see, two chapters plus two write-ups, more chapters for the class I just finished, a paper due in a couple days, and starting the outline and journal for the quilt class. Oh, and don’t forget, I have to work and try to exercise, too!… OK, now it’s time for bed…
