Bragging on beginners

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.img_0036This 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!

Linda sent me these pictures after I posted this page.  Here’s her grandson enjoying his new quilt!

Here’s Jean’s beginner quilt.  She used only eight fabrics.  She has it basted and she’s planning on hand quilting it.  Great looking!

Last, but certainly not least, is Laura’s lovely creation.  Such a great set.  She started binding it this week.  Laura Davies quilted this for her.

Such beautiful quilts!  A big thanks to my beginners…they aren’t beginners any more!!
