Teaching Quilting!

Isn't this a beauty? It was shown at the Birmingham Quilters Guild Monday. A member of our Guild (Joan Knight) is an uber talented longarm quilter - she quilted this for a customer and it won 1st Place in a recent national machine quilting show.
It's a pattern put out by Laundry Basket. I wish the quilting showed up better in the pictures - it is amazing!

I am excited to share that I will start teaching quilting classes in August at a local store! Yay! It will be wonderful to get back to teaching! I'll be teaching a beginner quilting course and I'll also be teaching intermediate and more advanced classes.

Classes will be held at Thimbles in the Hoover/Riverchase area of Birmingham. Beginner classes will be held the second Tuesday evening of each month from 6pm to 9pm. So exciting!
Today I'll be cutting more of these. My poor left hand was tired yesterday - too much hexie work and too much applique! So I'll give the hands a rest from hand sewing to cut and machine sew.

Mickey Update: He's still a bit puny, but is okay. We've decided he's strained a muscle. He's done this before and it took several days to feel better. He's enjoying getting babied.

Wow! The quilt is such a good one. I like the style of stars. Each one has its own look. I can see why it was a winner.
