I started a new beginner class today; it’s going to be a good one! I think it takes courage to walk in a quilt shop and sign up for a beginner class. My new students had not met me. They did not know each other. They had not done lots of sewing. They just walked into the shop and liked the quilt! We learned how to rotary cut (four fingers on the ruler; pinkie on the mat!) and they left to go home and cut their strips. They all bought beautiful fabric combinations. It will be fun to watch their quilts come together.
