TNT Thursday

First off, I just want to let everyone know that after today TNT will have a short break for a few weeks.  It will be taking a hiatus during the Simply Charmed Blog Hop :)

Now, onto what I tried new this week :)  For the first time, I did some quilting "Homework".  Seriously, I never thought I would ever do "homework" again in my life.  But . . .  tonight, my Mother-In-Law and I will be attending a class on speed piecing a Lone Star Quilt as part of the Cedar City Quilter's Guild Retreat, and we were given homework to bring to the class.  Here is my finished homework.  I am so excited to see it transform tonight.  I plan to give this quilt to my grandmother for her 80th Birthday.  I am so excited :)

  

So . . . . My new thing is quilting homework :)  (Hopefully I won't have a lot of homework popping up in my life again, I was very ready to be done with that after college, tee hee hee)  What did you try new this week???

  8. I have to share my story of the first time I got "quilting homework". It was prep for a class that had to be done prior to the first meeting. The teacher left instructions on both my cell and home number. After my husband heard the message and how "serious" it sounded, he asked if it was the "Quilt Nazi"!. It was soo funny the way he said it, I had to share with the teacher and the whole class (plus her) thought it was hysterical :)

  9. Right here is the right blog for everyone who wants to find out about this topic.
    You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will
    need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic which
    has been written about for a long time. Excellent stuff, just excellent!
