What a busy week! I spent three days at the Gulf States Quilt Association's Seminar in Baton Rouge, LA. They did a great job this year selecting some fabulous teachers. The first class was Machine Quilting on Your Domestic Machine with Nancy Hinds. She did a great job explaining the basics and going over some finer points of machine quilting. She taught us how to free hand several different design elements. I can't wait to try these new methods on my next quilt. The one thing I will really have to remember is to PRACTICE! I am always in a hurry and just want to finish and move on, and it is mentally painful to me to have to sit down and practice something before I can do it.
