    Here is the first ever quilt I made
    6 week class to make the sampler blocks and assemble the top

    I then took another brief class on Machine quilting....
    Quilted tons of Practice sandwiches and then took the plunge...

    I LOVED IT!!
    Don't completely LOVE the colors.
    I think its the FLoral I dont love
    but I am learning to trust my own instincts now

    I hope this works
    This should have been the last pics but I was confused
    The sunlight on my table that day made the sticthes
    show up in the picsures so nicely!

    This is the lable I made using T-SHirt Transfer
    I LOVE the look of it but I was too stiff
    I was in a rush - so I used what I had at home....

    I have bought the injet lable paper now
    and am anxious to try it out

    Thanks So much Twistedsticher - (Love the name by the way)
    I loved the whole process - The class was just great
    the teacher was awesome
    She made us cookies and tea every week
    a 3 hour class for 6 weeks...
    I was proud of myself too for finishing it
    many in the class did not...
    I dont know how much talent I have
    but Passion seems to be filling the bill so I am very happy
    We did a block each class and then home work blocks
    I chronicled the whole process - block my block on my facebook
    picture albums if anyone is interested...
    I explained what I was learning under each block...

    Sheila,

    You are really good at this!! Thanks for sharing. If you are a computer junkie, you will be printing off a lot of info that is on the Internet about quilting. Join us in chatting too.
