Project Teen Class

This last Saturday, I went to Quilter's Square , in Lexington, KY, and took a class with Melissa Mortenson of Polkadot Chair ! I was really excited to meet Melissa, she is a super talented Blogger, Author, and Designer! We received her book Project Teen as part of the class which was wonderful that Kela, Quilter's Square, set it up that way. If you are like me with a 9 years old at home this book is perfect! New ideas for the older child in your house! I am making the study pillow and putting it under the Christmas tree with his new set of books! I plan on making a few other projects in the book for my niece too! It is a must have book for any Sewist collection! The Study Pillow I picked the fabrics based on what I hope David would like but I just could not help myself and used Tula Pink line Moonshine and a mix of Cotton + Steel Basics Melissa was nice enough to sign all our books and write a personal note to each of us. Inspiration is everywhere at Quilter'
