Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa...
I think I may have to say 10 Our Fathers and 10 Hail Mary's because I may have just created a new quilter!!!...and, I liked it! Of course, it is a little bit early to know and I would accept it...if it wasn't so...but, for now I am going to embrace the possibilities!!! My youngest DIL thought she should give quilting a try since she lives in Quilt Country and we are after all related!!!! Yesterday was spent together for her first quilt lesson...boy, does that ever have a musical sound to it!!! LOL
I explained the basics of quilting...quarter inch seam and accurate cutting. We spent the morning talking about fabric, value...tone...color. Then a baby quilt pattern was chosen and the fabrics decided upon from my stash. It was interesting to revisit the basics of quilting...and to drag out all my novelty fabrics!!! OMG!!! I need to start piecing again!
We took a break and had a field trip to the Stitchin' Post where Emily found a flannel roll of Christmas/Winter fabrics...her first pre-cuts!...I am so proud!
Guess who we ran into?! Freddy Moran!! She was taking a class with Rosalie Dace??? The secret message in this is that you are never to set in your quilting ways to not challenge yourself, lol
I love this photo...Quilting Queen and Novice Quilter...
it is one of those special moments :)
As I said yesterday...anytime I step into a quilt shop I would share my favorite fabric. Well, I lied...a whole new shipment of Kaffe cotton prints and wovens arrived...and...
...and fabulous solids to compliment them...how could I chose just one!?
Yesterday was such a gift and I highly recommend sharing your quilting love with a someone who has never quilted.
It really reaffirms your own love of quilting.
