New York Beauty
Well aware that my blog posts of late have been full of serious stuff, today we return to quilting, to less somber topics, to a bright and cheerful quilt.
The New York Beauty class was taught by Sarah Bond, a famous Philadelphia quilter, through the Mt. Airy Learning Tree; the classes (four Monday evenings from 7 until 9) were held at Handcraft Workshop (a terrific place). It was an excellent experience. From the ease of signing up to the convenience of the location to the charming classroom, the close-in parking, and the spectacular teacher, all was excellent.
I struggled with some of the elements. Others went into place so easily that I was convinced I'd done something wrong! Some of the blocks are prettier than others.
It is done, it has reached flimsy stage. And I'm pleased with it.
