Last weekend, I took several classes at Stitches, the local shop where I bought my HQ Avante. They had an HQ educator in for classes on fills, rulers, finishing quilts... The teacher was fantastic and the classes were amazing! I learned so much and I am ready to start branching out with my quilting!
To that end, I left the shop with a few tools... A Handi Light that plugs into the USB plug on the machine and it is now clipped onto my handles and waiting for it's first chance to be used. The Handi Grips that are clear sand paper for the backs of rulers. And the half circle templates and a longer straight edge ruler. I am set!
And I picked up a couple more on my way home. Sheet protectors and dry erase markers to start drawing out some designs.
I need to get busy on some small projects so that I can start practicing!
And since the classes, I have been busy quilting on the batiks wedding quilt and finishing a wall hanging top and cutting out 3 more Sew Together bags. Nothing that I can really show right now, but it's exciting to be moving forward on a couple of things!
