Last night I finished two sets of my SBS swap blocks. Just eight more to go! Tonight is a free night for me so I plan on getting two to four more sets finished. I also plan on basting July baby boy tonight, machine quilting, and attaching the binding to the front. That will give me two quilts to bind/knot loose threads while away from my sewing machine on Sunday. Saturday is the all-day tourney for softball so I will be manning the concession stand all day long. No quilting/sewing for me :-(.
I won't get to see Bubby after all. He's already promised to his daddy and other grandma for the day. But sis said she'd be able to get together with me to go fabric shopping. I'll just have to give her the train quilt instead of giving it to Bubby (like he knows yet what to do with a quilt - the little guy will just be 9 months this weekend).
I signed up for the pillow class, but the supply list was not ready. The lady teaching the class is out of town 'til next week so I have to call on Wednesday to get it. I liked the sample pillow. I'll have Beth pick out some fabrics and just do some patchwork pillows for her. If I can find a similar/coordinating print I will make her one of the class ones. Who knows, I may be able to get enough extra fabric/coordinating prints to make her a throw for Christmas. That's an idea.
Since I won't see June baby boy until Wednesday I'm not worried about finishing his quilt tonight.
I did look into the rag quilt class that I thought was interesting, but it's a flannel/home spun type of quilt, which is not what I was wanting. Oh, well. The sampler class looks interesting, but it's $270!!!!!! You meet 1 on 1 with an instructor for your first session. After that you meet the first Thursday evening or the first Saturday morning of each month. Class time is devoted to discussing problems/issues/techniques. You hand-piece one or two blocks a month. You can finish in a year if you do two blocks a month. You pay $90 when you sign up. At that time you get 15 yards of fabric, which is enough to do a queen size quilt. Then after you finish the first 8 blocks, you pay the next $90. You pay the final $90 after finishing 16 blocks. So I will either be paying $90 every four months or every eight months. I'm thinking about it. It was a lot more than I expected it to be.
Well, I guess that's all my updates.
