Another Finish

I haven't finished another quilt, but I did finish teaching my first-in-Florida five-week series of beginner quiltmaking lessons. The last class was Thursday morning, and it's was fun to see what everyone created, and hear their plans for future quiltmaking. (Five of the 18 students were unable to attend the last class.)

Most students completed their quilts, and several have started another. Those who didn't finish got a little hung up on binding, but all have said they will finish their quilts. I'm so proud of them!

The Daily Sun newspaper came out to take a few pictures and talk to a few women... who said the nicest things.

A picture didn't appear with the article, but that's okay. We know who we are and what we accomplished! Way to go quilters! Linda
