A Quilty Day Out - Show and Tell

Well, yesterday I spent the day at  A Quilters Odyssey doing a workshop for the Double Wedding Ring Quilt.

It was heaps of fun ;-)  it was so nice to be able to sew with like-minded people, and to be able to sit quietly and concentrate, with the assistance of the lovely shop owner, Kate, who helped us through all the 'tricky bits' ........ and let me tell you, there were a few tricky bits  :)

Kate's Quilt - the sample we were all admiring :)
As I posted previously, my final choice of fabric was this
Final Choice - all washed ready to go
I stayed with the purples/burgundy selection.

My First Quilting Workshop

Fellow classmates
the class - with Kate, our wonderful teacher, on the right
Under Kate's guidance, we had a ball learning some new techniques.

I must confess, I started with class with lots of excitement with the intention of making a Queen Size Quilt.  As the class progressed, and we got to the 'tricky bits', the quilt size reduced to a Single, then to a lap quilt, then to a table runner, then down to a cushion cover  LOL  but I think I will persevere and make a lap quilt - although I am already thinking ahead ................. it would make a great candle mat in Christmas fabrics ;-)

I fully understand now how quilters have such a sense of achievement when finishing a Double Wedding Ring Quilt - I only hope I can stick with it and share that sense of achievement myself ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
