So excited to have finally finished my first quilt. It is nothing fancy, just a string pieced number. But I still love it.
I did this along with the workshop I coordinated for the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles with participants from Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence, mentioned here. I figured if I am going to continue on with being the project coordinator I needed to have actually gone through the whole process. It was so much fun and I can totally see making more quilts in the future. This one was pieced and quilted by machine. The SJMQT purchased this fantastic machine and I am now trained how to use it. I still need to learn the computer component, but I do know how to run this fancy pants machine, doing free motion quilting. Right now, we are teaching all the women that went through the entire workshop how to quilt on it too. They are having a blast with it.
This evening we are heading up to SF for Frances and Greg's reception at Flora Grubb. Can't wait to see the bride and groom in their custom made apparel. I will post finished pictures of the green couture dress I made for her, next week.
