While growing up, I was surrounded by such talented and creative women. Talents such as singing, playing musical instruments, sewing, crocheting, knitting, cooking, baking and quilting, just to name a few. I have always loved to learn new skills, and I have taken full advantage of any opportunity to learn. However, I totally missed out on the quilting lessons while growing up. There was plenty of opportunities to learn. My Grandma Yoder seem to always have a quilt in the works. So, now I find myself desperately wanting to know how to quilt.
I found a wonderful quilt shop in Trenton, KY that offers classes to learn how to quilt. I signed up for Quilting 101 and have had two classes already. The class is small, there are five of us eager to learn students. Our teacher, Justine, is quite a gem and a wonderful inspiration. The class consist of ten class sessions, plus homework. We are each creating a sampler quilt and I promise to post a picture of my quilt no matter how it turns out. And 'yes' you can teach an old dog new tricks!
I have a couple of inspirational quilts made by my Grandmothers and passed down through generations.
So, stay tuned for my progress. Meanwhile I hope you will be learning something new this week also!
