I managed the first week of teaching beginning quilting at our local quilt store on Monday. I had two true beginners, not just quilting, but sewing. They did really well, and by the end of the day had a couple rail fence and square dance blocks done that properly measured the 6 1/2 inch. The other 3 ladies had some good sewing experience. And, this coming week I have a 6th ladies, starting late, but fairly experienced so she should be able to catch up quickly.On the home front I am on the last month of my Garden Party Down Under BOM. This has been a long 11 months. These two are all ready to sew together and add to the rest of the quilt. Stay toned next week for the finished quilt top.
I love the garden party blocks. It will be lovely when finished.ReplyDelete
Beautiful projects, I especially love the blue baskets!ReplyDelete
Those ladies are fortunate to have such a talented teacher! I love seeing your blocks- all so pretty.ReplyDelete
Oh, how beautiful your blue baskets are! Such pretty vases of flowers, too. How fun to be teaching the joy of sewing and quilting and all the how-to's involved, to ladies who really haven't sewn before.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on getting to teach a quilting class. Your last blocks for the Garden Party QAL look great. I can't wait to see how the entire quilt top comes together. And as a huge fan of blue, I am totally in love with your baskets blocks. So many yummy projects you're working on. Happy quilting! -AndreaReplyDelete
Your blue baskets are beautiful! Enjoy your slow stitching today!ReplyDelete
You have had a very busy week indeed, with teaching and sewing away on these two projects. The blues in your basket quilt are delightful.ReplyDelete
I like that basket quilt. I can definitely understand the tediousness of the bias edges.ReplyDelete
Both projects are looking good! Glad the class is going well. Good luck with both this week.ReplyDelete
Both your projects are looking lovely but I hear what you say about all the bias edges - looks like you mastered them ok.ReplyDelete
Wow, the lady who had no sewing experience is doing great! LOVE the jar fabric on that top Garden Party block. The blue baskets are so, so pretty. Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!ReplyDelete
How well I remember my first quilting class! Thanks to my teacher, I realized that maybe, just maybe I could make a quilt! She was amazing!ReplyDelete
Your Garden Party Down Under BOM blocks are lovely! Your Basket Quilt is lovely.
Your work as a beginner quilting teacher is potentially life enriching for so many of your students!
Cute little flowers! Love the fabrics for both vasesReplyDelete
Hi Donnalee, both of your projects are coming along nicely. I'm looking forward to seeing your BOM put together. It must be fun teaching new quilters - they are so enthusiastic. Thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks.ReplyDelete
Really like the newest pieces of your garden party.ReplyDelete
Your class sounds fun, and you did a great job managing the various sewing levels of the ladies. Lovely flowers, the quilt top is going to be a beauty. I love the basket project too.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing your progress, and linking up!
Fun flowers and beautiful baskets!ReplyDelete
Such pretty blocks! Hard to decide which one I like best. Right now I'm rockin on those lovely Kaffe fabrics in your Baskets quilt. So pretty! Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
Wish I would have made the Garden Party quilt - I am in love with it!ReplyDelete
The beautiful blue tones in your basket quilt is so so pretty as well!
