I joined a quilt guild! I haven’t gone to my first meeting yet, but yesterday I had the chance to take a class set up by the guild! And let me tell you it was AWESOME!
Even though I have been quilting for a while, I haven’t really immersed myself into this world until recently. There are sooooo many things I never knew or heard of and my mind is being blown almost on a daily basis!
The class was Stained Glass Quilts. If you haven’t heard of the “remarkable” Mark Sherman, check him out now! Remarkable Quilts Don’t walk, run!
We each got a kit. This included the basics needed to start. It really was a fun process. One thing that was not included that is needed is a light box. Mark had some for people to use, but most of us had our own.
If you don’t know what a light box is, it is basically a board the emits light so you can trace things on it.
Here are some pictures of my progress.
I can’t give all the secrets away, but I can tell you that Mark shared everything there was to know. So much information that I probably didn’t retain 50%!
I chose to purchase his DVD so I can finish this up the right way! I am excited to see how it turns out! Unfortunately, my schedule is packed so I am not sure exactly when I will finish it, but my goal is to complete it by the end of the month!
I will certainly share it when complete, so come back to check it out!
Today we are going to Epcot for their new Art Festival! I hope to share some cool pics of the happenings there!
Until next time, happy crafting!
