I thought I'd write about a couple quilt class related things, mostly for those of you who are in the Sacramento area, and I also wanted to tell you about our last Hey Ghoul Friend class--AND I want to do a little giveaway related to that, so don't click away from me just yet!
I mentioned to some of my local friends that I planned to design a "Fall!" quilt that I was going to teach in September. I haven't done that--the design part--so I'm not going be teaching that class in September. I know a couple of you even penciled it into your planners, so get out your erasers and plan something else fun that day. (Invite me! I'm available!) I decided that my
nicotine-addiction withdrawl symptoms lack of motivation should be indulged for the time being, and I didn't want to pressure myself into designing, sewing, and quilting something when I just wasn't feeling the excitement. Sorry.
On the other hand, the Buggy Barn Halloween class on August 15th is full to overflowing with a waiting list, so Bearpaws & Hollyhocks is adding a second class--I think it will be on September 12th and will either be taught by me or Lindy. If you're interested, check with the shop. The newsletter should be out soon, so the shop will have all the pertinent info in the next couple weeks.

If you don't want to do a Buggy Barn class but DO want to take a class from me, I will be teaching a class on Saturday, November 7th called Kim's Kristmas Klass. I plan to have various free patterns and project ideas to offer the students and we'll work on whatever strikes our fancy and/or fills a holiday decorating or gift need. Details will be in the newsletter, so watch for it.
We finally finished up the Hey Ghoul Friend class earlier this month, and one of my students, Victoria, got two gold stars for completing not one but TWO quilt tops. Here's a photo of one of them:
Darn cute, isn't it?! And as a special treat for my ladies, I made some small quilts to celebrate completion of the class and to thank them for hanging in with me until the end.
And, of course, I packaged up the little quilts with a little bag of trick or treat goodies.
And this brings me to my giveaway. Send me a photo of your completed Hey Ghoul Friend quilt top, and I'll put you in the drawing. OKAY, I'M JUST KIDDING! I suspect that would leave almost no one in the drawing. So here's the deal: Just leave me a comment that you want in, and I'll put you in the drawing to win a little Halloween quilt and goodie bag. I'll close entries at 5 p.m. Pacific daylight time on Friday and post the winner's name on my Saturday post. Good luck!
