Higher Education

It's never too late to learn so I've enrolled in a fabulous university. Our school colors are navy blue and burgundy and the school is Moda University! I need to catch up on the BOTM that were given out before I joined, er enrolled. At our next "class" I will be assigned to a sorority. I think this will be a great experience and lots of fun.

I finished the last of the 16 stitcheries from Bea at Capricorn Quilts. This was a very enjoyable BOM. Now I need to set the blocks.

Redwork stitchery with saying quilt shops around the world

It was Fantastic Friday at The Quilted Cottage and I was able to finish two more Valentine baskets. They are so addictive. We were each given a FQ of football fabric in honor of The Super Bowl. Wasn't that a great game?

Yesterday, I finally finished the cutting for the guild mystery quilt and began sewing a few segments of Step 2. I think the cutting took longer than the rest of the quilt. I have a few weeks to catch up before the final step is given out in March.

I'm way behind on reading my Bloglines, so maybe I can catch up tonight.

Hi Jeanne,
I've seen those patterns at Capricorn Quilts when I've downloaded the OUAT designs there. Haven't started stitching those yet, but they sure are cute. You've really been busy...all those valentine bags...very nice!

Your Valentine Baskets are darling! My sister just started sewing (at age 55!) so I am planning to make her a basket and fill it with notions.

Moda University??? I've never heard of such. Is this an online thing or thru your local quilt store??? if on line can you share a link?

I use to feel like I was taking online classes back when QNN first started. I'd sit at my computer with my notbook.. LOL

Congratulations on finishing up your Quilter's Blessings BOMs! How exciting! I've just started this year and am on block 3 so I sort of feel ahead hahaha. ;)

OH and those Valentine baskets you made are so super cute! You have to make up one or more for your next blog give away OK?? :)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
