I teach a beginning quilt class at Village Fabric Shop. I LOVE beginners; they think I know everything! It really is fun to help them pick fabrics, learn to piece and then surprise themselves with their beautiful tops! Here are some of their creations. The pattern comes from Julie Herman’s book, Skip the Borders.This one belongs to Anne-Marie. Her 4-patch fabrics were a great pick.
Love it! She was in the shop just yesterday to pick her binding.
Amelia made this quilt for her grandchild. She’s getting ready to machine quilt it herself. It’s a happy quilt!
