Today I participated in a workshop offered by the Magic Needle Quilt Guild. I learned a new technique for making a cathedral window quilt from a wonderful teacher, Teresa Justice. I’ve always wanted to make a cathedral window quilt, but I can’t seem to stick with a big hand work project long enough to keep it from becoming a UFO. I’ve started the CW quilt several times over the years and if I could find these UFOs, I might actually have enough for a large tote bag! The technique I learned today takes a lot of the hand sewing out of the process and gives me hope that I might actually be able to finish the “pillow” I started in the class!
Our lunch menu was AWESOME! My good friend Jo is an excellent cook and today we got a taste of some authentic “Cajun” cooking. Jambalaya, crab cakes and beignets never tasted so good!!
I’m off to watch some TV and do a little hand sewing on my CW pillow.
