Testomonial to Jean Cable's Quilting Class!

If you ever wondered if taking a Machine Quilting Class would get you going in the right direction..........here are a few thoughts from Sylvia S.,  who took Jean Cable's machine quilting class!

Sylvia said..........."I just about got tired of working on it but I was determined to finish it before I start another project. I started it about a year ago and put it aside waiting until I found the backing for it. It is a queen size and I did all my free motion quilting thanks to a class I took at the Quilter's Loft. Erica, be sure to thank Jean for me. Her class was very helpful!

Here are some pictures with details of her quilting.  A beautiful project....Sylvia....thanks for sharing!
