Quilting Academy: Day 2, March 2011

19 03 2011

It’s been a 13-hour day! Day 2 saw my group taking Eleanor Burns’ all-day class, where we used Babylock Symphony sewing machines to make a table runner  following Eleanor’s pattern. The actual class time was 6 hours, and we had a ball! This 65-year old lady is a barrel of laughs and such a hoot! Update: You can see the finished piece here: https://sandgroper14.wordpress.com/2011/04/25/black-and-gold-table-runner-finished/ and it’s now for sale on my Etsy store too: http://www.etsy.com/listing/72826221/black-and-gold-fan-table-runner).

After the class was over, I drove Jane from Virginia and myself to the Sewing Machines Plus store in San Marcos, where the staff  plied us with pizza and other goodies (and 20% off everything in the store). This was followed by Eleanor’s Radiant Star Trunk Show, which promoted her new Radiant Star book and showcased some of the quilts made from the patterns in the book.

Below are some photos from today; click on a small image to see it full size.
