Glad December is on It’s Way Out

Whew! December has been a busy, busy month. Between the holiday, baking, visitors and teaching sewing classes over school breaks I need a nap. hahaha.

I wanted to share a photo from my 2 day quilting class. This was a class of advanced students ages 10-16 years old.

They created the “I’m a Wiener” quilt from the Dare To Be Square book. I’m so proud of them!!! This was a BIG challenge in a short period of time.

They learned to piece with 1/4 seams, machine quilt using a walking foot, and attach bindings. This photo was taken with various stages of bindings being done.

They have already taken my beginner quilting class, which uses the quick turn and tie method to complete quilts. The beginner class also learns to piece using a 1/2 inch seam.


Next time your at the book store take a look at Dare To Be Square by Boo Davis. It’s full of fun quilts and patchwork projects. Most of the projects are great for using up stash scraps too. The book has a very thorough section on patchwork and quilting basics with plenty of large photos. There are instructions for 10 quilts, 2 baby quilts, book cover, vest, 2 pillows, table runner, place mats, pot holders, apron, stitched cards, tote, and a stuffie.
