I love to quilt on a machine – either on my Bernina or on my Featherweight. However, there are some people out there that will tell you in their most serious tones, “It is only a quilt when it is all done by hand.”
This was a class taught by Pat Yamin (Come Quilt With Me owner and established in Brooklyn). Pat does her quilts by hand but also teaches machine methods. Now my points got kind of mushed in the center so that tells me I really need to slow down when making this pattern. Or just do it by hand.
Pat will be at Road to California Quilt show, Jan 23-26, 2014 at the Ontario Convention Center both teaching and selling items from her booth. She is a very patient teacher and keeps us laughing with jokes and stories. She has some great fabrics as well as templates. The templates are very sturdy.
I have a few of these blocks done but will probably do a bunch by hand just to make sure my points are perfect. The quiltzillas are out there – if you see them, just smile and get out of their way.
Thanks for reading and if you are looking for a new hobby, try quilting. You meet some great people along with the quiltzillas.
