SM #18 - Third Class

This evening's class was all about making a quilt sandwich. Newbies learned: two ways to baste; how to tie; about various battings; and received an overview of quilting, focusing on machine quilting.

During work time, newbies and Rebekahs teamed-up to help each other with their quilts, just like the Bible's Old Testament prophet, Nehemiah, who formed a team to help rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Go team!

To those of you who are persevering through Stitchin' Mission lessons, thank you! There are some who have given up, so your continued dedication to attending, and taking time from your busy lives to sew at home, are especially appreciated. Abundant blessings on you! There's no doubt the kids will be blessed by your generous gift of a quilt.
