Glad that's done...

Well, I did it.  I taught my first demo last night at my local quilt guild.  It was on back-basting needleturn hand applique. (Say that 3 times fast!)  And I must say I enjoyed it.  They are a great group of ladies and it was all very relaxed.  And for those that bring back their sample blocks in the next couple of months, I'll join them all together into a charity quilt.  Because really, what can you do with a single 8" butterfly or Sunbonnet Sue block?

Sample blocks from demo...

So now that's done and I can move on to the next thing(s).  I'm currently sewing the binding down on the Spider Web quilt and then that too will be complete.  I'd like to get started on making block 3 of the sampler our bee is doing.  The first 3 blocks are all hand-pieced and I'm learning a lot.  I finished block 2 (a 6" and 12" version) just last week.

Blocks 1 (6") and 2 (6" & 12")

Although the stars look blue on my monitor, they're really black.  Block 3 teaches us english paper piecing which I've done a little bit of before.  I made this quilt for my secret sister last year using this method...

Finally I thought I'd share a picture of Winston and his new haircut.  He may look funny but he's a lot more comfortable without the heavy coat...

Until later...
