As many of you have read, In seventh grade, I failed HomeEc. For all the years since then, I have proudly proclaimed; I do not sew. I decided though, I wanted to try and make the top for our daughter's 100 Good Wishes Quilt. So, I took the plunge and signed up for the patchwork made simple 1 class at Little Quilts, a local quilting store. For 3 hours yesterday, I learned how to cut fabric, use a sewing machine and even how to iron. (I neither sew nor iron! What kind of mother will I be?) The instructor had patience beyond compare, because look what I was able to accomplish, I have one block of a quilt ready to be sewn together!
The fabric in this quilt is "practice" fabric, NOT the fabric that has been sent to me along with wishes for the 100 Good Wishes Quilt. Now for homework, I have to make more of these pieces so that during the next class, I can learn how to sew the blocks together.
I am still collecting fabric for our daughter's 100 Good Wishes Quilt. If you would like to contribute a fabric block and a wish, please let me know.
