I find myself this morning with a little time to actually update ya’ll on what I’ve been up to this week. Wednesday passed me by before I realized that I forgot to do my WIP Wednesday post. So, here’s an update on what I’ve been able to accomplish with my Get It Done list for this month –
- First Quilt – October goal: Hand quilt border #2 and #3.
- Easy Street – October goal: Get the backing done and baste it
- Raining Cats and Dogs – October goal: Finish block #9
LInking up with Quilt Story to share.
- Secret Project #1 – FINISH THE TOP, QUILT AND BIND!
Pacific International Quilt Festival is coming up. It starts Wednesday night and ends Sunday. As I’ve posted previously, I’ve signed up for a few classes and I’ve been prepping the materials and supplies for each class. I have only one class left to prepare for and I’ll be doing that this weekend. I wasn’t planning on going shopping but I was told that I HAVE TO GO shopping at this show. 🙂 So I cleared out my credit cards and saved some and I plan on checking out what is there. I was told to check out the wool booths and to be sure to purchase LIGHTs. Apparently while there are local shops I can purchase wool from here, it is difficult to find the light variations. I was also told to get the thread/yarn necessary to applique wool from here as the selection and the price at the show is better than anywhere else. I was given some more guidelines that I wrote down somewhere so I hope to be able to get some good stuff. I’m so happy to have met really helpful ladies in my guild who can give me such insight! I went to the Long Beach quilt show for a couple of years but didn’t have this kind of help so I pretty much just bought kits that caught my fancy. While that is okay – I think I’m growing as a quilter. I’m becoming more interested in the different tools that are showcased and how I can use them to help me with my quilting. This is exciting for me and I’ll try to document this as much as possible!
