The week in quilting
Hi, blog friends! I’ve had a very busy, un-glamorous week. Lots of writing, collaborating, hustling, and preparation. All good things, most of them very fun and rewarding, but I’ve been itching for that one big, beautiful finish. The week still had its beautiful moments, though. Here are two of them.
My preparation for quilting the green Peek quilt happened in the glow of some beautiful afternoon light.
Yesterday I visited my older son’s Kindergarten class to talk to them about quilting. I showed them Trill, Love Letters, the Quilt Camp sample, and the Christmas quilt. My little man was so proud to show his stuffed Sharkray’s quilt. After that, the kids glued fabric squares to paper to make their own little quilts.
I hope you’re plugging on with your own projects, whether they’re quilty or not. Good things come to those who work hard.
[This week, the class schedule went live at Rock Paper Scissors! In addition to this Monday evening’s Peek block class, I’ll be teaching Building Blocks both during the day and at night in May. There will be Half Square Triangles, Quarter Circles, Flying Geese, and a new two-part finishing class called Quilting and Binding. If you’re in North Jersey, come join me. Check the Classes page for details. You can also see class updates on my Facebook page.]
I cannot wait to see this quilted. It’s going to be magnificent! I love that you are sharing quilting with your son’s kindergarten class!
Oh how fun to be able to go and share your quilts in your son’s class. I am consistently amazed at how enthusiastic and excited children are about quilts and crafts. 🙂
