From Start to Finish – A Quilt Primer

A big welcome to the world of quilting to my latest graduates of Quilt Primer!
Over a couple of Saturdays in April I taught the Quilt Primer (beginning quilting) class at Out of Hand, a local needlework and quilting store.  We covered everything from fabric selection right up to binding and after two intensive days of learning and sewing these ladies had a crib size quilt about 95% finished.  Most were at the point of hand-sewing the binding on to the back of their quilts.

Darlene & Pat
Don’t you just love the fabric selection and beautiful colours?

Corissa is a fashion design teacher looking to add new skills to her repertoire, Kathy was encouraged by a friend in California to take quilting lessons, Courney’s mom is a longarm quilter, Darlene has taken Quilt Primer before and came to accompany her cousin Pat, who has done some quilting and wanted to learn the basics and hopefully a few tips and tricks. 

Welcome to the world of quilting ladies, I look forward to seeing you in a future class.

What we learn with pleasure we never forget.    ~ Alfred Mercer
