I stopped in a quilt store in town called 906 Quilting. They have a longarm service and lots of classes and other gatherings. It is a mother/daughter operation. I meet Kathy, the mother, who could not have been nicer. I am going to the open sew on Thursday between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Kathy says they have a nice group of women who come to the open sewing. I am also going to sign up for one of the classes. It is based on a pattern by The Pattern Basket called Feathers. Here is the pattern.
I picked this for the border.
This for the binding.
And this for the backround.
Today I got a call from Edyta Sitar herself explaining to me that she no longer had the fabric I wanted for the backround and did I want to (1)place the order without it, (2)cancel the order, or (3)she would pick something else out that she thought would work. How nice is that. Of course I said she could pick something out. Can’t wait to see what she selected.
The class starts on August 16th so I have time to get the fabric. I hope I meet some friendly, local quilters although no one can take the place of the wonderful quilters I left behind.
I have been able to get some quilting in and will post pictures as soon as my design wall is up and running. For now, I hope everyone is getting some quilting in.
Why maybe. Because I am trying to get a Michigan license and so far I have not been able to get my birth certificated because I am not legally Patti. I might have to get a name change by the court. I will write about this when I get it all straightened out.
