Blooming Nine Patch Classes

I taught two blooming nine patch classes today.  All of the fabrics are cut and we focused on cutting and organizing.  I made labels for the baggies and most of them got almost all of their cutting done.  They have almost a month to make all their nine patches.  We will lay them out on flannel-backed tablecloths for them to finish at home.

The way I teach this class is that we don’t actually sew in class at all.  First we pick fabric and get organized, then after they sew at home, we lay out the quilts and then they sew again at home.  It works out well.

Here are the fabrics that will turn into lovely quilts.

Chris - Batiks

Karen - Batik

Louise - Black and White

Morning - Florals

I also cut fabric for a non-traditional Christmas quilt to make for our Christmas in July at the end of July.  I had to cut charms and make kits.  I will get photos of that to show you tomorrow.
