I'm Quilting!

My mother gifted me a Craftsy class for my birthday, and I bought Camille Roskelley's Precut Piecing Made Simple.  I am totally hooked!  And this is actually my second quilt!  My first is being quilted - it was really huge and I wanted a long arm quilt template that I couldn't do on my machine - but this one is 100% mine!

I cannot say enough good things about the class.  And I am not affiliated with Craftsy or Camille in any way.  It was easy to follow, beautifully filmed, and she has a very calm, serene manner of teaching that made it a relaxing, fun class.

This quilt is actually her Fresh pattern.  After watching her class, I immediately bought her books: Simplify and Simply Retro.  This pattern is from the Simply Retro book.

I highly encourage the classes and the books.  Quilting is so satisfying on so many levels.  And I also feel like it is a bit of the holy grail of sewing, no?  It is such a big body of work!

I guess it's a success since Zoe, the cat, settled right in.  And she hates everything!

Thanks for reading!
