That's how easy and comfortable it was meeting Milah at Quilt's Plus today. Just like we'd known each other forever.
We did more gabbing than actual sewing but we still managed to trash the place. Luckily it turned out we were the only one's in the class today. I don't see how anyone else could have gotten a word in--or an elbow in for that matter--otherwise. I needed to get to a meeting at the school after class, which was probably good or else we would have still been there and they would have had to kick us out at closing time.
At first our instructor, Kay Kingsley, thought Milah was stark raving mad for signing up for a quilt class she'd never seen by the recommendation of a person she'd never met. But I don't think it took her long to figure out that we were two peas in a pod. She kept having to crack the whip to keep us on track. By the end of it I'm sure she realized we are BOTH stark raving mad and are made for each other.
Here is Kay posed with two of her quilts. She does incredibly drop-dead-gorgeous work. And I love her philosophy on quilting. She says "My dog ate my rulebook so anything goes."
We go back in two weeks for the second half of the class. I'm already looking forward to it. If it was half as much fun as today it will be a blast.
