December & January Meetings

We had a really great meeting in December. Cathy A. taught us about the techniques of machine quilting. She covered a lot of tips on smooth lines (boy, do I need to practice!) and even bobbin drawing - very cool! Threads, following a design, etc. It was very beneficial to those of us who need all the help we can get in that area (me!).

January (tonight's meeting) will be taking it one step further. Our teacher's quilts are wonderfully full of interesting designs of machine quilting that really complement the design and elements of the quilt they are on. She is going to cover the designing of the quilting that can make your art quilt even better! Another area of quilting that I desperately need!

Did I mention that quilting is not my strong point? :oP""
