So, I've started teaching a beginner class at Mill House Quilts in Waunakee. Check out the progress made by my students! This was a long class -- eight weeks.
On day one we talked all about fabric selection and I gave them a challenge where I assigned them a focus fabric and they had to pick out coordinates. They weren't always given the fabric they would have chosen themselves, so it's a great exercise.
The next several classes focused on making the different blocks themselves. Then we had a "putting it all together" session. Finally, we ended with quilting and binding. Two of the students took on the challenge of trying free motion quilting for the first time!
I really got to know this group of quilters and am happy to call them friends as well as students. If you're interested in learning to quilt, check out my classes.
