8:00 pm update
The Class Act-Baby quilt is finished. I am once again offering my Beginner's Quilting course via our school's Community Education program, so I needed a sample for the Class Act. I didn't include all the borders; this will be donated to Zion Lutheran's baptismal quilts once my class is complete.
7:30 pm -- it was just a wee bit early to hang up my quilting supplies for the day, so I pressed the 4-patches and HST's that I have been sewing as my leaders-n-enders. Do you recall Bonnie Hunter's Jan/Feb '08 article in Quiltmaker? Her Blue Ridge Beauty? I've finally started the leaders-n-enders for that one. Hmmm.....when do I predict the finish? How does June sound? July latest? Let's see....I dug into my magazine pile to find the pattern....it calls for 448 4-patches and 448 HST's. Okay.....I have 42 4-patches completed and 28 HST's.....but who's counting????
