Tonight was the last night of the Beginner's Quilting class. During sesison 3, we talked about having a pot-luck for the final class, so we DID! :0) Meatballs, a Chicken/angel-hair dish, veggie salad, tuna salad, and 2 varieties of brownies. DA-LISH! Tonight was a Show-n-Tell of the final quilts; sharing stories of the final steps of completing the quilt. Pictured "up front" is Keri, the School's Community Education Coordinator. She heard through the grapevine that we were having a potluck, so she stopped in (with gummiworms) and chit-chatted. She ALSO is a running acquaintance; remember the marathon post? You can read about her there, having run her half-marathon.
But LOOK at what these turkeys did! How does THIS work? THEY needed to cough up the bucks to take the class, THEY needed to cough up the big buck to buy the supplies, but yet, LOOK at these goodies that were gifted to me! This bag is ADORABLE. Joy used one of her excess blocks and glued it to the front.
.....a lovely frame, cute 'lil pin, and a Quilter's magnet that says "When Life Throws you Scraps, Make a Quilt." Hythe also gifted me a tiny trinket box containing a spool of thread and a personal "thank you" for what I can ONLY assume was for using my backup machine. Crazy lady! I didn't mind it AT ALL!
So, was the class a hit? I THINK so! I sure loved it, withOUT a doubt! And the quilts turned out so lovely!
My first quilting class success **heavenly sigh** They were already asking if (WHEN) I was having the next class........."The Advanced Beginner" :0) We're already talking about getting together in May.
I LOVE QUILTING!
