Beginners’ Quilting

Quilting classes at my local quilt store haven’t been filling up this year – of four I was scheduled to teach this fall, only one made.  We met for that class yesterday afternoon and had a good time!  Age range was 8 to 12 years old and fortunately a grandmother and mother stayed to help out.  Part of the challenge was that of the five students, only 1 showed up with any knowlege of the supply list.  At least all of them had their fabric and a positive attitude. 

The quilt pattern we were using is an easy quilt-as-you-go approach.  Works really well for something like placemats.  Here’s the class samples:
