I took a hand-quilting class, shortly after finishing my first hand quilted quilt. The amazing Jill, at The Quilt Cupboard, taught me how to properly stitch/ hand-quilt using the rocking motion. It was quite fun learning how to quilt the right way! Lol
We sandwiched muslin, batting and some plaid fabric on a hoop. Jill had us trace and stitch a pretty medallion-like stencil design!
I learned how to properly do a quilters knot and it was fun meeting other beginner quilters. 🙂
This is Annie, she is the store’s mascot! 🙂 isn’t she adorable!?
She supervised the class, but mostly slept!
I was content with my stitching, some puckers here and there, but good enough for me! 🙂 I started to sew rectangles on the sides to make it a little piece instead of just a medallion. Lol
Jill is such a great teacher! 🙂 I really enjoyed her class!
Coincidentally enough, her husband Steve sells sewing machines!
I finished a bit early and had time to check out a sewing machine, which I ended up taking home a couple of days later!
I went home with not only goodies and kitty fabric, but more importantly, knowledge on how to quilt and lots of tips from Jill! Thank you again Jill! I really enjoyed your class!
I am sorry to, still, not have completed this piece from class, but it will get done soon[I hope]. 🙂
Have you taken a quilting class? What did you learn?
Did you finish your piece?
Hehe , Thanks again for reading!
Toodles for now,
Diana, Jeanie and Ray<3

Looks like you had a great teacher. Your hand quilting looks awesome! I took a quilting class eons ago. Made a whole quilt. I still have it. Keep going. You’re doing great!
Oh she’s incredible! 🙂
I will also be taking her quilting 101 class, making a quilt with 9 blocks, learning different techniques on each block!
I’m so excited!
Thanks for reading and I’d like to see you class quilt! 🙂
