1st Quilting Class

Greetings!! After wanting to learn to quilt for MANY I took my first quilting class - Start to Quilt. It took me 4 hours but I made a 9 patch (I think that's what it's called) block. I LOVED it! I obviously need to work on cutting and sewing straight lines...I'm hoping to make another one of these in the next week before I forget what I did! (Although, the kids are on Spring Break all next week so that may be wishful thinking until they're back in school...)
I am taking a class on 3 Fridays in April to make a Star Baby Quilt. There will be 3 hours of class each Friday and homework (I'm now anticipating spending A LOT of time on homework after seeing how long this took me to make!) Since I have no more babies at home I have chosen 8 pretty, springy fabrics to use. (I am using the 2 I used in the block above and 6 others prints. The background will be a pretty creamy white.) I am looking forward to this class and hoping I can learn to stitch straight in preparation for it in the next 2 weeks :-) Thanks for visiting!



  1. Great start on quilting, you'll soon be doing lots more x x

  2. Hello Meredith! Your first block looks fantastic! You really made my day on the comment you left on my blog, thank you for being so kind. I hope you will enjoy quilting as much as stitching! Have fun!!
