Feb 1993: With the lessons paid by sister Susan, I joined a beginners’ 4 week class at QQ in Friendswood. I had no desire to do quilts, as I was making clutch bags and totes for sale along with aprons for my craft shop stall. I was still doing fashion sewing for my daughter and mother, & darn it Susie, I was TOO busy to take classes, but I did for her. Susie is my next sister in age and can be quite persuasive when it comes to what she needs; she needed to learn how to make a quilt for her only child David for graduation from High School. So hence her sewing sister, that be me, needed to know how to do all of the steps. Susie attended two classes and did a bit of cutting, even then I knew that she was not going to be able to finish this class, she was at the time a L&D nurse in charge at a hugely busy maternity hospital.

I finished the piecing and the top was quilted by machine on a baby lock with just stitch in the ditch technique. I thought i was done forever.

See the next project. King me for my bed, grandma's garden pattern by McCalls
