thank you for your sweet comments on the previous post
they are all great projects to work with
this weekend we were invited to go to a cottage near lake Joseph, one of the Muskoka Lakes
two hours North of Toronto
the cottage and it's surroundings are both so pretty
we consider ourselves very lucky to be here
I have to work on my first quilt this weekend
so I took it with me
and it seems to perfectly blend in to the color scheme of the cottage
I am taking the quilt class at the Oakville Sewing Centre
the store is packed with beautiful and inspiring fabrics
the course is taught by Linda, she is an amazing and very professional lady
and wow, she did a lot of pretty quilting and is so experienced, we learn a whole lot from her!
we started off with a sampler quilt
12 blocks with all different kinds of techniques
I enlarged it a bit though, to practice more and to make a quilt that fits our couch
the top is now ready to be sewn together
and I signed up for the follow up course to make the batting, the back and the edging around it
I am looking forward to a weekend full of quilting and pretty sights here around the cottage!
and after that... I will fly to New York City for a few days of fun with one of my Dutch friends
yes, Excitement All Over Here!
~ enjoy your weekend ~
