I started a new series of beginning machine piecing classes today. There were 4 students in the morning and 5 in the evening. I thought I had taken photos of all the exciting new fabric selections but somehow I only have 7 photos. Here they are:
Everyone did a great job for the first day. We covered fabric and tool selection, perfecting a 1/4 inch seam, cutting fabric and ironing/pressing correctly and they all did a wonderful job. The first block we make is a rail fence block. Actually, there are 8 rail fence blocks in the quilt so they all have some homework to do this week.
Tomorrow I am teaching a pillowcase class. That is always fun.
