Quilting.

Untitled

I decided to sign up for a ten-week beginning quilting class which meets Wed afternoon at the local quilt shop down the freeway a few exits.  Today was the first class.  I'm deep into my third quilt, this is a good hobby for me - I've tried a bunch of other ones: knitting, drawing, music.  This one suits my personality somehow - the rate at which you can make progress on a quilt, the different fabrics, the cost, the machine & tools, the usefulness of the end result.  I hope to quilt for a long time, but before I press on (ha ha <- quilt joke) I thought I should learn the basic techniques from an actual teacher.  Annette, our teacher, has been teaching this class for ten years.  I should learn a lot.

Today we learned about color selection and how to square up and cut fabric.
