Hobo quilt class was as usual full of nice ladies and lots of laughter. Our teacher is so sweet and makes our class a fun enjoyable evening. The storm arrived but it was well worth driving in the rain. I have never had as much fun in quilt,rug hooking or doll classes as the Country Loft. The added bonus of a class is the knowledge you can get from your fellow classmates.There is always an interesting quilt or two that someone brings in to share with the group.This months class we had a demonstration on applique.
The Hobo Quilt book is good but there are parts that are confusing when assembling the blocks.I was getting a little confused with the rulers while I was cutting yesterday and so I went to a friends house and had her watch me cut my blocks. Linda saw where I was getting mixed up turning my fabric. Linda gave me a refresher course on snowball she watched me as I made two snowballs for the wheels.I guess the book expects you to know what technique to use.Wow just the little she showed me made my cutting a lot easier!
The book is confusing when you cut the sizes.Be careful to notice sometimes its a length measurement first.I am glad Linda could see where I was getting confused at.
Enjoy the pictures of the Country Loft as usual it’s decorations for fall are enjoyable to look at.
