My favorite Things

Once a month I attend the Dear Jane Clinic at The Crazy 9 Patch in Ramona.  Our teacher, Susan Axelrod is excellent and I learn new things each month.  I got all my applique pieces prepped this week so I'll have some handwork to do.

Monday, I joined my quilting buddies, Jan and Patsy, and we headed to Quilter's Paradise in Escondido to quilt 2 small quilts on the longarm machine.  We took a class together to learn how to use it-however, it seems as if we have to relearn it every time we go.  Then we went looking at sewing machines as Patsy needs a new one.

I love the swirls on the back

The binding makes such a big difference!

Your swirls are gorgeous. Good for you for trying new things. Those long arms still make me a little nervous.
