It’s an official grand-baby quilt
When Emily (Carolina Patchworks) said she was looking for a few people to participate in a test of her class curriculum (aka “guinea pigs”), several hands went up. By the time we worked out the crazy schedules, we were down to just three. I knew as soon as we picked the pattern that this would be the first “official” grand-baby quilt, not to mention a wonderful chance to:
- Learn how to sew a Carolina Patchworks pattern from Emily herself.
- Sew with the new Michael Miller Couture Cottons (amazing).
- Spend time with some very talented and dear quilting friends.
So off we went on a little adventure.
Emily is a great teacher. She’s very knowledgeable and has great tips and hints for her method. It’s not easy, but if you’re organized it’s not hard, either. In about 5 hours, we cut half the fabric for the baby quilt, and had about 25% of the rows pieced. I went home tired, but feeling really successful and ready to tackle the rest on my own.
Of course, two days later I picked up the fabric for the Storybook Lane quilt and haven’t touched Discontinuity in nearly a month (irony). Until last night.
I’m so happy to be working on this quilt again!
