February already! The last couple of weeks have slipped by in a blur of activity with the start of evening classes and our first Saturday class for this year. Lots of packing and unpacking of cars and setting up classroom spaces – seems to be our speciality. Barbara has sneaked off for her annual weekend retreat and has abandoned Chris to the management of the C&B empire (yet again! – Chris). The evening classes are going really well – we began with making a basic checkerboard strip
We’re going to work through various cutting and constructions for half square triangles, quarter square triangles and other exciting things.
The Saturday class was “Starter for Nine” – lots of lovely fabrics, speed piecing and cutting and lots of possibilities – we’re expecting to see several quilt tops quite soon ..
By Wednesday Kate had turned her blocks into a whole quilt top – doesn’t it look terrific?
Our new Mystery Monday project is off to a great start – you could slip over to LoopyLou’s blog and see her progress with some delicious fabric choices before we post the next step on Monday.
