Studying, working, planning my classes and practicing training is busy, and believe me, the energy it gives me make me manage it. The train-the-trainer course was very worthwhile and gave me a lot of inspiration! And the area was great. In the midst of green pasture, chickens and ducks there was a building where we had our class. Loved it!
And I did a lot of cutting. To give my students in Paducah a ready made class sample so they can travel light, makes it necessary to cut all the backings, batting and tops. My production line started here.
On the left 24 tops. Kona Cotton, cream, prewashed.
And then the batting. I made one with a blanket stitch, very visible, for everybody to learn from. Up above you can see the class sample itself. For the batting I this time chose a cotton, 100%, prewashed. Wool is great for batting in hand quilting, but as cotton usually is safer to wash, it is safer for a sample.
Now this is done, tracking and tracing of the design. This weekend will be a lot of tracing!
Have fun quilting!
