This morning I started with the first class of my beginner quilt class. This is the third go around. The three ladies in this class are all friends that I have known for a few years. It went pretty good. They learned cutting and 1/4 inch seams. One of the ladies has a 1/4 inch foot on her sewing machine that came with her machine. It was not working correctly. The little metal guide on the right side would bend out whenever she put the foot down to sew. It was frustrating for her. I marked her machine with blue painters tape (about 4 layers) to make a guide for her to follow but I suggested she let the dealer know about the problem with the foot. I wish they made one 1/4 inch foot that fit every machine. It would sure make it easier.

We had a busy weekend. It passed so fast. We were invited to eat at my BIL's house on Saturday night and went to the movies with them on Sunday night. It was a lot of fun. The men went to see "Ironman" and the women went to see "What happens in Vegas". It sure was a funny movie.

I think it is time I got off this computer and got to some sewing. See ya!

Surprised we didn't cross paths @ the movie theatre. We saw the "Indy" movie last night. Enjoyed it!
Glad your class went well.

I can't imagine what I would do without my 1/4 inch foot. For machines that do not have one, there is a generic foot called "Little Foot" that can be used. It has the markings for sewing and for where to stop for turning a project.

Pattie and I had lunch together and had such a great visit. Wish you could have joined us.

Sounds like you had a great time over the weekend.

Terry, I didn't know that you had a blog! Ok, so one day I am going to have to join one of your beginner's quilting classes. Have a great day!
