I have been working on this first quilt top this weekend, while Louie has been working on his college course. He is very near completing, and hopefully, will have it finished today. I really enjoyed this quilt top, as I love the bright colors. It is a patriotic quilt top. I love sewing these tops together, because the kit is all ready to sew, and each piece is pinned to the next. They are marked row 1, 2, etc, so once each row is sewn, then you just sew the rows together. The hardest part is matching seams.
I sewed this top together about three weeks ago….
…and I only had to sew the rows to each other on this quilt, as someone had already started this kit, getting each row sewn.
The tops will now go back to the Quilting Ministry, and someone will quilt them, then hand them off to someone else, who will sew the binding on, and finish the quilts. When I make the connection to get these back to the quilters, I will receive more kits to sew together. I love sewing for this group, even though I am not a member of their church, or the quilt group…but they let me help anyway.
Once in awhile, I get to see the quilts completely finished, and sometimes, I even go sew with the girls. That is the most fun.

Louie has been studying this weekend, and hopefully today, will finish all his lessons for the college course he is taking. He has been learning about CNC programming, and lathe work. He is very excited, and hopefully soon will be applying what he has learned to start cutting inlay work on pool cues that he would like to build.
What have you been doing?
Update: Louie did finish his lessons early this evening. He just needs to get credit for them from his instructor, and he should get his certificate. He will go down tomorrow evening, which should be his last time. I am so proud of him. I wish learning came as easily to me.
