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 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.
