Another Beginning Machine Piecing Class

Another Beginning Machine Piecing class started on Wednesday. This is my favorite class to teach because of the students and their excitement about learning to piece. I use Alex Anderson's beginning book and the first day we make some rail fence blocks.

Fabric selection is always a challenge for new quilters. I usually have them pick out a border fabric and then we find three color families to pick the rest of the fabrics from.

Here is one selection. She found the border that she loved and we were able to fill in from there with the fabrics above the border.

Here is the second one. The border is the green on the bottom of the stack.

This last group is all batiks. She picked out the dogwood fabric from the shop hop almost two years ago. It was just about the last of this fabric. This is going to be a beautiful quilt!
