crafty goodness

It seems that, in recent months, I've developed a new fondness for adorable fabrics. Along with that fondness, I've begun to purchase said adorable fabrics. No, I don't sew, quilt or do anything that would resemble coziness, so I think it's time to change that.

So, one of my new-years resolutions is to learn to quilt! I've found a quilt shop in Gaithersburg (bonus, it's metro accessable!) that will be offering a ten week course, teaching you to quilt!

Capital Quilts Complete Course click for photo Annette Burns 10 sessions/2 hrs. ea./$168 This is the ultimate quilt course! Annette will teach you everything you need to know about quiltmaking, from fabric selection to cutting, piecing, pressing, appliqué, set-ins, paper piecing, and so much more. You will make a sampler quilt incorporating all the major quilt techniques, and learn to sandwich, quilt, and bind your masterpiece. This is the perfect opportunity to start at the beginning and learn one step at a time—but it’s a great refresher course, too. You’ll be welcome whatever your background in quilting may be!A.) 2-4 pmB.) 7-9 pmJan. 21, 28, Feb. 4, 11, 18, 25, Mar. 4, 11, 25, April 1

I received a beautiful sewing machine three years ago and have yet to take it out of the box. I really need to find on of those courses by me. Good luck!

i already put a sweing machine on my christmas list for next year. i'm sure it'll be just like crocheting where i'm interested in it for about a month but oh well.
good luck with your class! if you're like me just knowing that you would be able to make a quilt if you wanted to would be good enough.

Oooh that is exciting! Do you already have a sewing machine?

I wish I could. My mom has an old school industrial sewing machine that she has scared me with.

I love fabric. I discovered some new fabric shops in my city this year, and I'm dying to make something awesome... I just don't know what.
