 A couple of months ago I took one of my appliqué quilts in to be quilted at my local quilt shop Blossom Quilting in Escalon, CA.  The clerk asked me if I would be interested in teaching some appliqué classes, particularly some for beginners.  Hmmm, it sounded interest. 

I originally made this wall hanging, which could also be used as a table runner, in 2013 or 2014 as a blog Christmas fabric line advertisement for Gina Martin a fabric designer for Moda.  I thought it would be a perfect beginners raw edge, fused, machine appliqué project.  So it is scheduled in July for  Christmas in July.
The second class is scheduled for September.  It is a fast and fun project for the fall.  I originally made this runner last October for my oldest daughter's birthday.  So fortunately had left over fabric and was able to whip this sample up.  Looking forward to this new adventure. 
The Dot quilt is done.  Borders all on and now off to the quilter.  Back and binding, well it has to be dotted fabric!
