Quilter's Academy

I am so excited I signed up for the Vol 1 of the Freshman Year "Quilter's Academy" by Harriet Hargrave & Carrie Hargrave. I am self taught and I wish I did this class when I began quilting. Lyn from the "More Sew For You" told the class to remember these names, very important. http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Item--i-M-32393-20. After the class we went into the shop and selected our fabric. I am doing the Regent Street fabric - Moda Regent Street Lawn Covent Garden Red.




Homework for this week is practice cutting fabric (which is great I have 2 buckets full of fabric to cut up). I learned when you cut do it fast, less chance of moving fabric.
The Pattern we are going to do is Triple Rail Fence.

Library Quilt

Went to Grapevine Library in TX.  Saw a lovely quilt, sewing machine block is beautiful.
