hit the wall

Seems like I am a bit tired. The class yesterday went well. I had 4 students with more signed up for the February class. A little issue was the fact that 2 of the students had new machines and didn't know how to use them yet. Fortunately, Teresa (one of the shop owners) was there to help them set their machines correctly. I also had a lady come into the class to see what we were doing and she was interested in taking the February class along with some of her friends. That was very encouraging! 

I had to leave my machine again for a minor tweaking. I am going to try piecing with my old Singer, just for relaxation this week.

I have committed to making a quilt for the Stokes County Humane Society to raffle for funds. I am excited about this and already have a pattern for the center. I just need to shead this blah feeling, rest a bit, and then plunge in.

Here is my string quilt on my design wall. It is going together so easily!

congratulations on the successful class.
are you using foundation on these string blocks?

Yes, I am using muslin. And I am using up my scraps! It is really a fun, relaxing, "no-brainer" block.

Love your string quilt. I like to use a base too. Glad you class is going well. Actually I need you class, since I do mostly straight line quilting. Maybe, with you unusually cold winter you are just in the winter doldrums.

Love your string blocks with the white strip in the middle. I'm working on my string xmas blocks and adding white fabric to the corners. String quilts sure are relaxing and a good way to use scraps. Thanks for your visit and nice coments. See you - hugs from Brazil
