Beginning Quilt Fun!

Several years ago, I began teaching a really basic beginning quilt class in our Community Ed program and in free classes in the Scott County Library System. I have wanted to offer the same class here in Henderson and finally it happened. This past Tuesday evening I set up the table at the library. Lots of samples to inspire and all the fabrics needed to make the project..........


There were just four students but we had a fun evening and plan to get together again. That's Diane on the left, and Nichole with daughter Lydia and Darlene. I brought pretty pastels and also some of Jacquelynne's fabrics lines. The project we're making is just twelve 4-1/2" squares sewn together into a placemat sized mat .........or a doll quilt in Lydia's case.  She's going to learn to sew and one day make a project for 4-H. How cool is that?


If you live in or near Henderson, MN and want to learn the really beginning basics of quilting, stay tuned as I'll be posting dates and times for future meetings. Looking forward to sharing the joy of stitching with new friends!!
Big weekend coming up in Henderson..........it's the annual Sauerkraut Days Festival! Looking forward to lots of classic cars, the tractor parade, mini donuts, the big parade on Sunday and lots more. And the best part?  Our kids are all coming out for the weekend so it'll be lots of family fun! 
Back soon.......

Looks like a fun group!
I teach a very beginner quilting class at the shop. There was a waiting list to get into class. So I am doing two sessions this summer starting Sunday. I love making new quilters. ;)
Have fun!

Let me know -- I'll be there! Nothing more fun than sewing in a group!

That's a great idea and I think the best of all is Lydia who is learning to sew! A new quilter there! :) Looks like you had lots of fun.

It was a class like this, at my church, that I learned how to quilt. Gail only taught one mini quilt over 3 months, but, the rest of us continued to stitch together for a long time. Glad you are passing on the comfort of quilting.

The first class I went to was about 6. I think 4 is a better size to learn. More attention...:D
