Sunday Stuff

Happy Sunday y'all! I've been really busy this week getting the Paper Quilting Explorations class lessons ready and I'm almost there.

I attended a class given by my local Bernina shop on using some different presser feet on the sewing machine. It's a 5 week course and different feet are highlighted each week. This past week we learned about a cording foot, a couching foot and pin tucking feet. In some cases, there were several different feet for one type of process, because of differing sizes. I did get one of each type of foot and have played a little bit with one of them so far. I'm hoping to get some time to play further with the new feet so that I can take a stitch sampler with me when I go back for the second lesson.

I also attended my very first quilt guild meeting. I went as a guest so that I could experience what it would be like to attend regularly. I enjoyed it very much. It's fun and exciting knowing that there are lots of other people who are into fiber art. I didn't much care for the business part of the meeting, and I know a lot of the members are probably most interested in traditional quilting, but nevertheless, I think I will join the club and have ladies night out once a month.

Here's a photo of a daisy doodle wall hanging I've started. My Daisy Doodle Quilted Wall Hanging class started this week and I'm making a quilt along with the students. I've never made one in this color scheme before. I'm liking it so far.
