Christmas Red Quilt Class 2 was Informative and Fun

Last Friday, red fabric in hand, students attended the second class in Joan's Christmas Red Quilt series. The array of wonderful Christmas fabrics was astounding. Students had searched a three state area, left no store unvisited, and raided stashes to bring such a variety of fabrics to cut, sew, and share.

The first order of business was to learn how to use the new Accuquilt. It was so easy! And it made short and accurate work out of cutting the squares for the quilt.  

More time consuming and brain taxing was the cutting of the white background squares that the students had embroidered over the last 2 weeks since the last class. Together we learned how and trimmed each square to the final dimensions.

Then the cutting of the decorative strips was done. Working together, we were all soon done with our cutting and ready for the fun part----sewing.

Jan, at the head of the class, demonstrated just how easy it is to sew the quilt together with her new Husqvarna/Viking Serger. She was soon whipping her quilt pieces together, accurately and easily with her new machine. And we were all adding a new serger to our Christmas lists.


How pretty it will look when it is all done! Don't you think?
