Sunday sewing....etc...


I got three of the blocks for the new Sampler finished today...also got the setting worked out...that took as long as making a block or two! the color isn't the best here, but you get the idea. I teach these Sampler classes where the quilters come once a month for 6 mos. and at the end have everything made for a quilt, they just need to finish putting it together. I started teaching the first one so that people could learn more after Beginning Quilting...and am working on the design for Sampler #10! There are 4 ladies who have made 8 Samplers and are working on #9. That's why I need to get #10 finished...they will start that class in July.

I went out to dinner with my youngest daughter tonight and we went to see Gran Torino. I have been wanting to see it since it came out. It was good, very different than I thought it would be.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Beautiful blocks and I love those colors.

Grand Tornino was good, wasn't it? In my mind, I chose a different ending though, CE is always my hero. lol
