A little of This & That
Yesterday morning I completed this little 14" square appliqued quilt for the quilt shop. It is made using a charm pack "At Waters Edge" by Moda.
The shop has only been open a month or so, I was lucky enough to be one of her first customers. We just hit it off right away, of course quilters do that. With in few days of the shop being open, Mary ask me if I would be interested in sewing samples for her.
We struck a deal that we are both very pleased with. Mary told me yesterday that the patterns that I have sewn samples of are flying out the door.
This darling little shop is only 5 blocks from my house, I don't even need to stop at a stop sign to get there.
The shop had there first class yesterday afternoon, I ask to sit in.
Sandi Moore, a seasoned teacher, was teaching a free scrappy tote bag class. I wanted to watch her teaching style, Sandi is also a retired school teacher, a real fun person to be around.
I am not sure I have any teaching skills, but I guess I will be finding out real soon.
Mary has me scheduled next Tuesday to teach a class on making placemats. It will also be a free class. It will be my first teaching experience so I am a little nervous about it.
I will also post my technique here next week, for a no binding placemat, be sure and check back.
