Verging considerably from the seamster angle this blog has been taking (if you’re only here for the quilts, feel free to ignore): I made my first-ever pull request (and had my commits successfully merged) on GitHub today! Voilà.
Boston-area folks: the Cambridge Quilt Shop has a $15 for $30 deal on Living Social right now. I’m three quarters of the way through their Start Quilting class with Monique right now, and I love it; they also have a good selection of quilting fabrics and notions. Definitely worth checking out!
