Right before I had Rodney, my friend Kayla and I signed up for a Beginning Quilting Class at Bigsby's Sewing Center. I figured that I would need something fun to do and something to get me outta the house once per week.
The first class was last week and we picked out our fabric. What is more fun than having all sorts of fabrics to browse and chose from? Absolutely nothing. Here is the fabric that I chose.
Pretty sweet, right? It is actually much harder to pick out fabric than you would think, especially if you saw some of the other people on our class. I mean, you would think that we were having them draw molecules of dihydrogen sulfide or something like that. Oh well, it is a beginning class.
So, we are making a sampler quilt and tonight I finished three squares. I must admit... it was the easiest one we are going to make. Here are our finished squares:
Yes, that is me, 4 weeks post pregnancy. Yes, I am standing in front of a gigantic wall of buttons. Yes, I have bangs again. Yes, those are bags under my eyes.
Please check back next week for an update on the quilt. We will be making a square that has 9 squares in it. They have all kinds of fancy names for these squares but I like to call 'em what they are: 9 square and the one I did tonight: three strips, not side fence post or whatever it is called.
Good Night Moon,
