Class Is Held

Only two of the three scheduled for class yesterday showed up, but we still had a great time, and the beginners really made quick work of their pillows. What good students!!

Dorothy and Mindy worked hard and fast. They both had picked such gorgeous fabrics.

Dorothy's pillow will go on her family room sofa. That neutral is the exact color of her walls, and this will fit perfectly with her decor.

Mindy  plans to use her pillow on her bed; she was recently gifted a quilt, and chose fabrics that would match. I think she did a pretty darn good job!

 Here's a peek at the quilt, and you can see how good a job she did at selecting fabrics to complement it.

**An aside concerning the quilt: About a year ago, my quilting friend Terry was making this quilt; Mindy's husband Mike had commissioned her to make one as a surprise for Mindy. It was to celebrate something or other -- a milestone anniversary or birthday, possibly. I even took a picture of it, but I couldn't use it for keeping the quilt secret. Anyway, Mindy has had her quilt for a good while now, so no ruined surprises here. Mindy did call Terry to see if she had any of the scraps left from the quilt; that query was unsuccessful, but it was definitely worth the effort. Mindy's eventual choices work beautifully.

Wanna' know what we had for lunch? I served basically the same menu as the first class.

Chicken salad with grapes and pecans on a bed of lettuce; blueberry muffin, and slices of watermelon and pineapple. Do you think I had a craving for fruit? Served on our screened porch with fountains and birds to serenade us. Very pleasant.

So class #2 is in the books, and I still have a list of folks who want to make this project. It may happen; it may not. I do enjoy it.

Happy Quilting, Friends!
