Quilting 101

Jan's First Quilt Fabric

Yesterday was our first meeting of Quilting 101 at our home. I was very nervous because I've never taught anything sucessfully in terms of hobbies like this. Quilting is not like scrapbooking where anything goes usually and you can pick it up so quickly. Quilting is a little more difficult but well worth the effort you put into it.

We had a lovely time spending the day together and my two "students" left still extremely excited about making their own quilts. The above shows Jan's quilt fabric which I happen to LOVE, as evidenced by the fact that we share the same fabric for our backings. Both Jan and Julie did a beautiful job choosing all of their fabrics, giving careful thought to both the comfort and aesthetic of the future quilt.

I am very proud of the start we have all gotten and I'm very excited to see what happens next week!
