A few weeks ago I began teaching three friends to quilt.
None of them have quilted before,
but they all had experience with sewing.
One of them calls our sessions
We are all having so much fun and it's so
neat to see how excited they are about their quilting projects.
I came up with a basic nine patch pattern for them to make
and the fun began.
Fabric shopping, rotary cutter safety measures,
cutting tips, 1/4" seam accuracy and nesting seams have all been covered.
Yesterday two of the ladies finished the inside section of their quilts.
Aren't they doing a great job?
The third friend wasn't able to join us yesterday, but
has been sewing her blocks together at home.
She is making a larger quilt and is making great progress.
We had a great time shopping for the fabric
and it was so interesting to see how totally different each of their
quilts looks. Their personalities really come through in the
fabrics they chose, but that is usually the case, right?
Next week we will add the borders and the tops will be finished!
While they were working on their blocks and tops yesterday
I was able to sew the blocks together on my latest
Disappearing Four Patch.
Borders come next!
