2nd Quilting Class

I had the first session of my second quilting class at the Olde Green Cupboard. I had forgotten about it so I had to run back home to get my supplies and sewing machine during my lunch hour. I thought the class started NEXT week. Thankfully I'd been in the store the day before and picked out my fabric with the help of the owner, Gloria. Fabric selection is tough for me. So many choices and being new it can be a bit overwhelming. This is what Gloria and I ended up with:
We're making "Down the Road" from the book "It's a Dogs Life" by Carrie Nelson. I couldn't find a picture of the quilt to post so I'll be posting my own a long the way.
In non crafting news, this is the little guy that is totally taunting my 2 terriers. Driving them crazy. Cody has caught 2 squirrels already so I hope this guy stays safe.

My first quilt was white with two shades of green. My second had 3 fabrics. Color and fabric choice is a skill you will aquire with practice. It takes a while to develope tastes and once you have they change again. lol.. Enjoy the journey.

Hi Jackie

I just found your comment you sent me a while back - so sorry it's taken me this long to get back to you! You asked for info on the boxes - yes you can buy them online from Xpedx. Have a look here.. https://shop.xpedxstores.com/Portal.aspx?CN=F67F34F4967E That is the 12x12 box. They are called 'protect n store' if you want to do a further search on the site for them. Good luck - they are wonderful!!

We need to roadtrip it to the quilt shop I visited this weekend in Trenton. It was amazing!

Pretty fabrics. Looking forward to seeing your quilt develop. The little squirrel is so cute. I can only imagine how nuts it makes your pups.

Love the fabrics you chose for your quilt! I'm looking forward to the pictures you are going to show us, while you work on it. I remember I learned so much from the quilting lessons I followed. Hope you had a great time (O:
