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.
