"Start With Hearts"

Last night we held the second part of our beginner class, "Start With Hearts." In the first meeting the class learned rotary cutting and they began piecing. Last night they continued piecing and put the entire top together. Next time we will quilt using a walking foot and bind it. Everyone will go home with a completed little quilt. 

 Maria is almost done her top. She hasn't chosen her outside border yet.







Isn't it interesting to see how different each one is? Someone made the comment that the fabric choice matches the personality of the person making it.

At the first class many of the girls had never used a sewing machine before. It is so exciting to help get new quilters started.

This is *not* a spam comment, thank goodness.
It is very interesting to see so many young women in your class. When I was teaching classes back in the 80's most of my students were in their 60's or older, a few in their 40's, and very, very few in their 20's or 30's.
(Of course, back then we also had to go searching to find 100% cotton fabrics.)
