Beginners Quilting Class

I have always wanted to learn how to quilt. I would be happy knowing how to make quilted table runners and wall hangings and maybe one day making a quilt. My two sisters and I decided to take a beginners quilting class. This is a beginners quilting class and it is a two week session. Our first class was this week,
we learned the proper way to use the rotary cutter and the cutting mat. We cut out our squares and the various pattern pieces. We sewed the top of our table runners, next week we learn how to quilt the runner, add the backing and the binding. It was so much fun and so information.
Here are the beginning pictures, hopfully next week I will have a picture of the finished product.





 I also wanted to show you the new penny rug that I finished, I love how it turned out.

    Looks like an older Country Stitches pattern for the wool penny rug ~ had a friend who made it awhile back - cute!

  10. Lecia, you are a brave woman learning how to quilt! I've always wanted to learn as well but fear the never ending fabric stash building that goes along with it. Can't wait to see your runner completed, it is looking wonderful already and your new penny rug is adorable, I love it! Deb

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
