The Double Star Quilt
That was when I decided that I needed outside help. I saw several of my Facebook friends were doing workshops at our local quilt and knitting shop, Home Ec, and so I got myself on the mailing list. The things that I saw those first few months looked very intriguing, but truthfully, I was so sick and debilitated from a prolonged episode of sepsis and hospitalization that I really wasn't up to it. But by this time last year I was thinking it was time, but that I should start small. So I took a napkin making class which was an awesome launching pad, in that I loved it and I finished something. The winning combination.
That was the beginning, not so very long ago, and this is where I am today. I took a start-to-finish quilting class, which i highly recommend, especially if you have limited quilting experience and need something to get you really started. What I needed was someone to pick out the pattern and give me a deadline. So with this quilt pattern I feel more confident that I can once again quilt. I am on my fifth one of these quilts, with four of them completely done, and in less than a month. I won't keep that pace up, but it is a really nice feeling.
