I am in the cutting out of the pattern after its been fused. I am wondering how I will machine sew the small orange circles. Guess I had better check back into the class and also read over the information I printed out. I stay so busy living in a Retirement Center sewing for others, doing genealogy, reading and helping others especially my 101 year old friend who lives here. While I have my trusted old Singer from the 50's I also have a Singer Futura which I am scared of. LOL I bet I have had it 10 years and not used it more than 5 times...hmmm It probably would be good to break it in on this wall hanging. I put a different wall hanging on my apartment door each month to share the holiday and was planning on this being my May one?? Hope I get it done in time. Sure enjoy the way you teach, easy to understand and can stop at any time and go back to it, wonderful. I also numbered each piece of the pattern and wrote on my master sheets so I could put them right where they belong, I hope....A wonderful class wonder what took me so long to go for it? hmmm

I learned a lot. I have now finished the appliqué , some very interesting butterflies in a variety of sizes, currently I am just looking at the top trying to decide how to quilt it. Once decided the challenge will be to get it quilted, labeled, and bound. Since it definitely looks like a girl's quilt I have purchased some interesting pink fabric for the borders. Now to get to work.
