    My guild ran the class that I took and it was the only class I did for the following two years until the symposium came up. If you have a friend who does machine quilting get them to guide you one wet weekend day perhaps as seeing it done can help. When I did my class I hated my work. It really looked so unskilled but....I persevered and pulled out my test piece again a month or so down the track and thought it wasn't as bad as I remembered. Now I practice a new pattern briefly and then my quilt I am working on becomes my practice piece as it is the repitition that helps you improve. Really doing a pattern over and over does help you get better. I see every quilt as a practice of some sort - piecing or quilting etc. My friend told me that once. She said "why not have a finished project to demonstrate a skill you learnt instead of an entire lot of practice squares not particularly useful to anyone. So.....give it a go and persistence is probably the only way to improve. Good luck.

    I have finally finished a quilt for my grandson. It sure has been instructive. I have learned very many lessons. Here it is.

    Okay, I'm missing something here. I, too, have "The Quiltmaker's Gift". Our Quilt Guild donated a copy to the local library and I liked the story so much that I bought a copy for my Grandma Book shelf. Now, where did you get the patterns? Online? 'Cause I just checked my book again and there are no quilt patterns in it. I would love the Evylen Sloppy pattern (Not sure if I spelled that right). The blue quilt is very nice, too, but I'm partial to the scrappy quilt look. I guess because I'm not that good yet and scrappy quilts are very forgiving. Ha ha

    Maria Cross and Barnbum- I love your quilts and the blues are great, some of my favorite colors. I have some of the fabrics you both used.
    Pattyspug- Nice quilt and I love your Prarie Points.

    Nita--there is a quilt book of the patterns--and a lot of the story!! I never knew it existed until I rummaged thorugh the ones for sale at Borders. It was an easy decision for me to pick that one. Let me know if you need the title....or picture of the cover.
