Day 11 - Most Impactful Class

Today was a good day of sewing, made some more of those Santa ornaments, added a binding for a customer, plus basted and started quilting the last customer quilt of the year!  While I was doing some of this I was on hold with the post office, starting a claim for a late delivery on an international package.  51 minutes!  Needless to say, I spent a couple minutes to do the survey at the end and told them, they really need more options on their menu.  It only took a few minutes to get help once I got to the right department.

A word of warning regarding rolling your binding on a long tube like a paper towel.  Can you see how the edge of this binding is rippling?  I ended up re-pressing it and it was fine, but I don't think I would have been happy with it if I hadn't taken that time.

As far as the most impactful class I have taken, I guess I would have to say it was the free motion quilting class I took with Cathy Sandbach.  She really inspired me to try new designs, and to be more confident in my quilting choices.  I do have to say that every class I have taken has inspired me in one way or another.  I've learned great tips, gotten good ideas for working with color, and just had fun working on a project.  I highly encourage everyone to take classes! 

Tomorrow is another good sewing day - I have my list ready and hope to get lots done!
