I had such an enjoyable afternoon today. I had a private lesson scheduled with a very special lady.  She takes classes every other Wednesday at noon, and I always look forward to seeing her friendly face.  This week we started her Victory Quilt Block Party Class.  Her name is Claudia and she was making up the first Block Party assignment.  I have been giving her classes since November, and it has been so much fun watching her skills improve and her Blocks change in appearance.

One of our classes was devoted to learning her Bernina 440 quilters edition.  It is amazing how important it is to know your machine.  There are so many tools that we seldom use on our machines.  Needle shift, auto threader, needle up/down, bernina stitch regulator, tension settings, stitch length/ width adjustments.  On Claudia’s machine she has numerous ( we are talking hundreds) of decorative stitches to be learned and used.  The world has really opened up to her as she gets more and more aquainted with her machine.

Claudia is such a trooper, she has taken classes on freemotion quilting, applique, and cutting.  She has been open minded and willing to change from her old habits and develope new and better ways of quilting.  Because of this, I want to dedicate my blog today to Claudia Otos.  My Student of the week.  Here is a Photo of Claudia and her first Block from out Victory Quilt Block Party.  You need to know, it is as pretty on the back as it is on the front.
