I decided to sign up for a ten-week beginning quilting class which meets Wed afternoon at the local quilt shop down the freeway a few exits. Today was the first class. I’m deep into my third quilt, this is a good hobby for me – I’ve tried a bunch of other ones: knitting, drawing, music. This one suits my personality somehow – the rate at which you can make progress on a quilt, the different fabrics, the cost, the machine & tools, the usefulness of the end result. I hope to quilt for a long time, but before I press on (ha ha <- quilt joke) I thought I should learn the basic techniques from an actual teacher. Annette, our teacher, has been teaching this class for ten years. I should learn a lot.
Today we learned about color selection and how to square up and cut fabric.
