We practiced different quilting patterns in the morning, then Millie gave each of us a class kit that included cotton sateen, wool batting, a spool of Kimono silk, and a Schmetz needle, size 60. She even included enough bias binding to finish off our sampler! Now that is a class act! We ran out of time to finish the sampler in class, but I didn't let it be just another UFO in my stash!
This was such fun to work on! I had never done clam shells before, always afraid that I could not get them perfect. But I marked out a grid, and went for it! I love the checkerboard effect! And what is not to love about a feathered wreath!
The nautilus design was not from Millie's class. I got this idea from Teri Lucas, another quilter extraordinaire! I love the swirling lines, and being able to use more lines to fill in! It was uber fun!
Speaking of Miss Teri, I was fortunate to have been interviewed by her for her blog. Please check out her blog, and not just my interview, but her whole site! She is an awesome quilter, and an awesome person!
