I finished my machine quilting class that I was taking from Carol Strong on Tuesday. It was an excellent class and I feel like I’ve got a really good grasp on what I’m doing now. Carol even said that I had picked up on machine quilting very quickly and she was impressed.

On another note, Mary had just gotten in some new fabrics on Tuesday, so our class was the first to look at them (and lay claim to the first yards of all the bolts). Absolutely fabulous. A lot of them are from the Timeless Treasures. This kaleidoscope pattern was hands down my favorite one. I got two yards of it. I also picked up a few other random ones from the Paradise Series by Pat Campbell. One of the other shipments that Mary got in was this one. I picked up a few of the sunflower patterns. I’m really looking forward to finding ways to use these fabrics.
