I love learning!

Yesterday afternoon was my day to work at the quilt shop. Had a good day, got a lot done. Then realized that last night was the class on Cathedral Window Quilts. I had notice this class when the class list was being drawn up and was mildly intrigued, then promptly forgot all about it. Then Brooke arrived at closing time to set up for the class. Don't know what grabbed me, but I immediately called my Mr. Wonderful, told him he could say "no" and promptly gave him all the reasons to say "yes." He so didn't mind if I took that class so I did. Here is completed step 1:

Doesn't look like much, yet! My completed step 2 didn't photograph well because of the black fabric and not-so-great lighting, so Peggy held hers up for me. Here it is, although it is not yet pressed:

And here is the first completed "window" -
far from perfect but a lot more fun than I thought it would be. And please don't tell my daughter-in-law that this means I am learning the basics of applique!!!! She has always encouraged me to learn and I have dug in my heels. I'm thinking I might like it!!!!
I will another picture when I get the other 10 "windows" done.

That looks nice! Looks like it would be hard too.

Thanks, Penney! It's not nearly as hard as it looks - once you know how. :)
