How I spent Columbus Day

I started with this: And ended up with this:
Clearly, I'm not neat. In fact, this photo is very kind.
I'm taking my first quilt class at The Olde Green Cupboard. My quilt is called Between Friends, a simple easy pattern from a book called Happy Hour. No borders. You start with very large blocks that you cut down. You can make another quilt with the scraps or a table runner. I think I'm going to make the table runner. My instructor, Carol, is very patient and explains things so very well! I'm definitely already addicted!
Lots of other very exciting crafty things going on this weekend but I'm going to save that for another post. I still have some pictures yet to take.

My first and favorite quilt teacher's name was Carol. Looking forward to seeing your first quilt.

I try to quilt, I have to have my mom help me choose colors. She has the knack for understanding light, medium and dark values despite color differences. I'm stuck on knitting, but can't wait to see your finished quilt.
