Good Morning, Quilters!

A NEW LOOK AT QUILT FABRIC
It was so much fun to see a quilt store and the array of fabrics through a beginner’s eyes!
Faye and Nora had a great time–like kids in a candy store! (Don’t we all still have that feeling!?)
They’ll be sharing their color palette soon!
SERGING FAYE’S INDIGO FABRIC
Faye was drawn to quilting by a collection of Indigo fabric she found at a quilt show. (Read Fayes’ post about Indigo HERE)
The shop owner recommended serging the Indigo before washing it, so I pulled my serger out of the basement to see if I could figure out how to thread it again.
We were in for some good luck! The serger was still threaded and it stitched like a charm, in spite of my horrible neglect over the past five years!
Nora and Faye zipped through the serging in no time at all–
I just hope they don’t think quilting will be that fast or that imprecise!
