The end of April I finally started to sew again. Not a lot, but at least I feel like I might be able to be a quilter again.
I have been spending time online looking at quilting sites and seeking inspiration. While doing that and playing on blogs Craftsy was having a sale. I went there and looked around. I signed up for some classes. I signed up for the 2012 Block of the month and the 2013 Block of the month. I decided to just do the 2012 one this year. And I am not trying to 'catch up'. I just started with the first blocks and will try to do the two blocks every month. Here are the first two
I spend a lot of time on Pat Sloan's online forum too. There are so many wonderful quilters there. So much inspiration and encouragement. Anyway, Pat is doing some sew alongs and I am doing one from her newest books. Here is my first block. I still need to stitch it down. Not sure if I want to do it by hand or by machine.
It is time at the shop to start new classes and programs. I had planned to have a new Block of the Month for beginners started by April. That was before the move of course.Now it will kick off in June. I have the blocks cut and ready to go. I also started a McKenna Ryan quilt that will be a Block of the Month for 6 months. It is a Christmas pattern called Heaven and Earth. This will be the first block presented.
I have more to tell you. A short trip. More quilty stuff. Some very cool bags.
