Quilt Class

Whew! My day got off to a shaky start, overslept,forgot my phone, foggy,rainy,yucky,but it did get better!
Beginning Monday, I start a quilt class! Mom's going too! The girl is going to teach us stack and whack! This method produces killidescope (sp?) blocks for a quilt. I've never done it but I've seen them and they are beautiful. I love to quilt and I love to learn something new. But, I must confess,I'm doing this more for my mom than me. Since my dad died, mom is kinda lost and needs some "friends" her age to get together with. She loves to sew and use to quilt too! I'm excited about the class but, really excited that my mom is going to get out and meet some new people and try something new. And quilters are the best kind of friends, right?
I'm really looking forward to it. Mom and I are going to my friends shop, (Jo Ann's, she makes be buy fabric) to get her a rotary cutter,cutting mat,a ruler and some fabric for the class. That will get her motivated!
I'll keep you informed. Hope you all had a productive Wednesday and didn't oversleep!
P.S. I forgot the best part, the class is FREE!!!!! WHOOOHOOOO! I can afford that!


  1. You and your mom are going to have a fantastic time. And I'm sure you'll both make some new friends, which is NEVER a bad thing. Post some pictures when you get a chance!

  2. I've never done a stack and whack quilt- let me know what you think. I'm sure you'll have a great time and I hope your mom finds a great group to feel connected with :) Christine

  3. I hope you mom will like this and find friends in quilting, this will be good for her. Never hear of whack and stack, sound like fun! ENjoy and have fun.

  4. Quilters truly are great friends, new or old, far or near! Hope your mom has a great time; you too! I'm anxious to see your first blocks and read of your reaction as you put each one together! The most exciting thing I've ever done! More fun than a barrel of monkeys! That reminds me --- Mine still needs to be quilted! ---"Love"

  5. I like classes. The LQS has done several stack and whacks over the last few months. They are very popular. Most are done with floral, but I did see one that used vegetables, and another that used the fabric from the "Cars" movie.

    I'm sure you and your Mom will enjoy the class!


  6. I hope you and your mum have a terrific time - I'm sure you will. Stack and Whack looks like lots of fun - I really liked Love's project (perhaps we can persuade her to re-post it?). You are a very sweet daughter to care for your mum so much. She is a very fortunate lady to have you for a daughter. Enjoy yourselves! Ann :-)
