This has been a great week! I got a lot accomplished and I feel like my sewing room is being destashed. The preview party for classes for next quarter went great on Saturday and I'm really looking forward to some great classes this summer/fall. Since I had to work on Saturday, Paul took Mikaela fishing with his family. I had the whole afternoon to myself and while it was hot, it was okay in my studio. I got to quilt! I loaded the sign language baby quilt and got it quilted. I used minkee on the back with a thermore batting which I love for baby quilts.
It turned out really cute with the loops and I was able to get it squared up and the yellow binding on last night, so I started doing the hand sewing today during lunch. I just love the feel of this quilt and how easy it is to snuggle under.
On Saturday I also pulled out the fabric for the back of my friendship quilt. I got the backing made and it's ready to load on the frame. I also plan to put thermore in this quilt as well. I just didn't get time this week to load it, but it's all ready and waiting on the frame.
Tonight and tomorrow night I am teaching Beginning Machine Quilting. I have a full class and am really looking forward to it. It's one of my favorite classes to teach and it always turns out different every time I teach it.
