Top of the Class

I’ve been teaching LOTS in the last few weeks! I’m really enjoying teaching more and I’m so proud of what everyone has made:)
First off, there’s Sarah! She just got her first sewing machine and wanted to make her baby a quilt. First baby=first quilt, of course! She started a few weeks ago and wanted to be done before the baby arrived. I was worried, but we made it!! Her due date was August 18 and we finished in time. BUT no baby yet…I’ll keep you posted. Here is what she made!!

Check out her sweet label; I’m so honored that she included me:)

And do you see the amazing quilting?!? She made the whole thing herself! (We borrowed the guru’s 830 to quilt.) So amazing!! I WISH my first quilt looked half this nice…

I’m also helping my friend Suzie make her first quilt! She chose a great rail fence design from Elizabeth Hartman‘s The Practical Guide to Patchwork. This is the first of her patterns that I’ve used and it’s been wonderful! Highly recommend!! Suzie is making great progress. We are meeting every Monday and probably have a few more weeks to go! Check it out!!

There’s been LOTS of seam ripping, but she’s doing well!

And today I taught my Designer Star Quilt to Betty! She is making it for her daughter who loves yellow and gold. It turned out lovely.

She finished the whole top this afternoon! Fast and fun!! We had a blast!
The Designer Star is also MY FIRST PATTERN! I’m very excited;) It will be on Etsy soon and (hopefully) available in your LQS! Check it out!!
