Works in Progress
I made a little more progress on my wonky court house steps project. I quilted it this afternoon with lines using light blue thread. I've got the binding attached to the front ready to be hand sewn to the back. I'll do that tonight, if the kitten will allow me to.
I have been making slow progress on embellishing my stitched project.
I've got buttons on about half of it so far. Here is a detail shot.
I just finished talking with Sandy from the podcast Quilting for the Rest of Us. She interviewed me about teaching kids to quilt. Sandy asked for resources and ideas in Big Tent about teaching kids to quilt several weeks ago. I responded with my experience in running Aunt Lynn's Sewing School and she asked if she could just interview me. I'm no expert, but I have taught my niece and son to do some quilting/sewing projects. I guess the interview went okay. At least Sandy said I did fine. She said the episode will probably air soon. I'll let you know when if you want to listen to me ramble on for about 20 minutes or so. By the way, if you don't listen to Sandy's podcast, you should. In my humble opinion, it is one of the better quilty podcasts out there right now.
