Upcoming Quilt Class

It’s been a little over a year since I took my first quilting class. Until now, I hadn’t found another one that I would really like to try, that is until I stopped by a new local quilt shop and saw they were offering instruction on Judy Niemeier’s Shattered Glass quilt.

As soon as they were taking money, I signed myself up for this class. I’ve been drooling over her Tropical Sundance, 4th of July, and Sunflower Illusions quilt patterns for some time now, but since I don’t know how to paper piece, I thought that these quilts were a little out of my league. If all goes well with my class, I’ll try out one of her larger quilts next.
The cost of this little number isn’t going to be cheep – currently, its up to $92 (and I still don’t have “That Purple Thang”, batting, and backing fabric!). Most of this is the notions. I picked up a cool mini irontextile tool (40% off) and a cooling bag (50% off), template plastic (50% off), and 2 rulers. I also got my fabric on the cheap – $1.50 fat quarters! Can you image the cost if I purchased everything retail?
