Beginning Machine Piecing–Class Three

Another wonderful, productive class or I guess I should say two wonderful, productive classes yesterday.  Let’s start with the morning class.

The first thing we do each class is to display the homework from the previous class.  Last week we focused on nine patches and nine patch variations.

As they make blocks during class, they take down their homework and put up the new blocks.  We worked on a square dance block and then moved on to log cabins.

By the way, the blocks on the bottom rows are from a student that was unable to attend last week.  We should have her caught up by next week.

After an exciting break go grocery shopping (senior day at the grocery story), I went back to the shop for the evening class.  Here is their homework.

And then the blocks they finished last night.

Great blocks from everyone.  A couple are still struggling with consistent 1/4” seams but getting better.  Next week we tackle half square triangles and make friendship star blocks.  I can’t wait.
