So Proud

Check out what a wonderful job Judy Gillenwater did making my "Zoo Quilt" pattern. You can't see anything but the top of her head because she's hiding behind her quilt top.

Here's an updated shot. She's added adorable prairie points to the bottom. It's hard to believe this is her first experience with prairie points and paper piecing. I love the gray background and the font she chose for the "zoo" letters.

If you live near or in Albuquerque, you may be interested in a UNM Continuing Education course I'm teaching at Ann Silva's Sewing Center every Tuesday in July from 6 to 8:30 pm. 

Here's the description:
Create a wall-hanging-sized quilt top reminiscent of the 1930s, using today’s tools and techniques. A progression of nine unique blocks possesses all the charm of a bygone era and none of the tedious handwork. Develop skills such as paper-piecing, appliqué, and more. This course is suitable for those with basic sewing skills, rotary cutting experience, and knowledge of quilt construction.  A limited supply of sewing machines is available for use free-of-charge at Ann Silva’s.

Go to the UNM Continuing Education website to register. The cost is $95 for five sessions and 12 1/2 hours of instruction.
