Quilting 101

Here are my students! LOL We had a great time on Saturday afternoon until about 7:30. Judy, April, Robert, (yes, we dragged Rob to the fabric store) and I shopped for sewing notions and fabric so April can make her first quilt. She (we) decided on a rag quilt since it's a relatively easy one to make as a first quilt. We came home, cut all the fabric and batting, pulled out the Bernina machine that Deborah has so good-naturedly let me "store" for her, and we went to town! Rob and Judy shopped for dinner and so we ate hurriedly on Albertson's chicken, potato salad and beans.
Of course, Judy is my Quilting 102 student and was a very good assistant. As soon as April has her first quilt finished, I'll post a picture.

Time to change clothes to get to the gym. My Jim here at home is not feeling too well since his back has been giving him fits the last few days. Joe came over and gave him a massage and now he's taken some meds. I hope he begins to feel better, soon! I don't like him sickly.. lol

I'll be back to comment on Susan's "Make my day" award. Thanks, Susan!
