In one course, we had to come to the first class prepared to give a short (five-minute) presentation on the topic of our choice. Since there wasn't much work-related that I could teach to non-bankers in five minutes (oh, darn), I decided to do something related to quilting (shocker!). My session was entitled "How to Make a Quilt" and I made up this mini sample that showed a quilt in various stages of completion.
Trust me, five minutes go really quickly, so I was only able to touch on the highlights - choosing fabric, cutting, stitching, assembling the top, layering the top with batting/backing, quilting and binding. It was very well-received.
Made Some Progress On...
Alas, the courses took all of my spare time and mental energy so nothing sewing-related got done except that I started work on the other pouch I'm making for the VMQG/PMQG pouch swap. That's some original Flea Market Fancy right there, oh yes it is. The green fabric is a really nice linen.
There will be some stitching around this lonely hexie to fancy it up.
Didn't See Any Action:
Everything else. That will change soon, though - I have another all-day Quilt By The Bay day retreat coming up (yay!). Much sewing will be done.
Linking up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced and Monika @ The Needle And Thread Network ('specially for Canadians - have you checked it out?). I love my Wednesday routine! :)
