Well, making table runners at least!
So I've been working on a simple project that is suitable for beginners,
in preparation for teaching this as a class at StitchCraft Studio, Grantham
I asked my lovely friend Katy of I'm a Ginger Monkey if I could use her book as the basis for the class,
and I was thrilled when she agreed!
If you don't have this book, it's a great compendium of blocks and small makes, ideal for the beginner,
I'm more than happy to recommend it!
I chose fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics
made a few blocks
made a few more
and before long a runner was in the making
and of course I had the perfect match for the quilting too!
I quilted in the ditch on this runner, I wanted the blocks to pop and don't want to intimidate my beginners with any fancy schmancy quilting ...
so, if you are a beginner quilter, been watching from the sidelines thinking you'd like to give it a go, but don't know where to start, I will be teaching this as a beginners class, along with all the basics of cutting, 1/4" seam and the difference between borders, sashing, and half square triangle!
