Beginner Class

I am teaching a beginner class.  I have a hard time saying "teaching", because I have never considered myself a teacher, but I guess I am sharing what I know, so I suppose it does make me a teacher of some sort.  Regardless, I am learning how to teach while they are learning to quilt!

So, here are a few photos of our progress.

Attending are 2 young girls in their early 20's, and it is so refreshing to have them on board!   I get a kick out of how organized they both are, here is a shot of  Heather with her piles or fabrics all organized into the blocks they will be sewn into!

And here's a shot of Julie trimming after sewing on a strip.

 They are so enthusiastic and alot of fun!

Judy here is squaring off a block.  She is making a photo quilt for her grand-daughter, with an absolutely wonderful assortment of teal fabrics you ever did see!

For first-time quilters, they are doing a wonderful job!

Here they are after Day 1.

And here the quilt tops are ready to be quilted.

I'm so proud of them!
