And so I set off to my first quilting class with quilting in my veins. I liked the class pretty well, and enjoyed getting to sew and learn how to piece the quilt. I decided to tie my quilt, instead of machine or hand quilting it - if ties were good enough for Grandma, they were good enough for me. That went fine. Then I had to stitch the binding on. And to make it look nice, it really needed to be hand-sewn. Oy. It took me months to finish. And the quilt? I have yet to add tabs to hang it on the wall, so mostly it hangs over the railing. It turned out pretty well, but I think I would rather knit. Thankfully I have my grandma's quilts to continue to warm and inspire me.
