I had been wanting to make a quilt for a while,
but it was a project I was a little afraid to take on by myself.
I'd also been wanting to take some kind of sewing class, just for fun,
but the classes offered at Jo-Ann's weren't really cutting it for me.
Then I discovered a little quilt shop less than 10 minutes from our house,
and they were offering a beginner quilting class...
I ended up getting the last spot in the class!
I'm so glad I took the class. It was a lot of fun, and it was nice to
get out of the house for the morning, learn something new & make something pretty!
We made smaller quilts, "snuggle-sized", and I was really glad that
we went through every single step, right down to the binding
(which was the part that confused me at first).
It's not perfect, but now I have a beautiful quilt
& the skills learned to make another one very soon!
