Bubbly Babies Quilt Class

During the Panquitch Quilt Walk I taught a class where we made a baby quilt made with Texture Magic.

Babies love texture. This is a wonderful quilt where 8 of the squares are made with TM.

I have made two versions of Bubby Babies in pink

Bubbly Babies is an Annie Unrein design, and one of the first patterns she created using Texture Magic.

The class was well attended with 13 participants. None of them had ever worked with Texture Magic before, so it was fun to show them the how fun it is to use this new product from Superior Threads.

The students worked away sewing TM to their fabric.

It was especially fun to meet Merlene from Colorado. She has been following my blog since I first began 2 years ago, and we have communicated back and forth many a time. Now I have a face with a name, and have gotten to know this lovely lady a little better.
Thanks for taking my class Merlene!

The fun part for me is to watch the students steam their fabrics with Texture Magic and to hear the oooohs and aaaaahs as it begins to shrink.
Every student commented that they can hardly wait to buy more TM and play with it some more.

How do you wash it after? Can it be put in the washer and dryer?

It is fscinating stuff, isn't it? I never thought of using it on a baby quilt, but it's a great idea.

I know the ladies were so excited to take your class. Some of them were in my class and some of them stopped by to see where there class would be.
