Quilting and class

I got a the bright Peas in a Pod quilt quilted the other day. I used a new panto, and really like it. Most of the fabrics have polka dots or circles of some kind, so this quilting pattern seemed to fit. This quilt is a little bigger than the original one.
Sometimes you can see the pattern better from the back!

Wednesday and Thursday I had class all day to learn more about using online resources at school. It was interesting and I think I can use at least one resource to help kids find info when they are doing research. I have a pretty good variety of books in the library, but it would be impossible to have every subject they might want in an elementary library. So this should help. They could probably use more than that one, but that is what we will start with.

I didn't get any quilting done today, have just been piddling around on stuff around the house. I want to work in the garden for a while later, when it is in the shade! I have a Binding 101 class tomorrow, but that is about it for a week or so. I need to start working on the new Sampler too. Always something to do...

That is a fabulous quilt! Did you make it from a kit or you assembled the fabrics yourself?

the quilt looks great quilted. Remember the days when we couldn't find any orange fabrics?

We had rain off and on with sunny periods too. It was too humid to garden though.
