Making class samples

I am planning a skill builder workshop on patches next month and this week kept myself busy making a couple of projects for class.

Sitting through a workshop taking notes and looking at pictures not making something to show afterwards is no fun.  So I thought of taking my February beginner quilters through a quick memory check doing everything from piecing, through sandwiching and free motion quilting to binding while turning their patches into little gift bags afterwards.

I had lots of fun folding and decorating these, I hope they will too.  Went shopping with my blonde this morning, had a mean breakfast and then purchased a light read to entertain myself with this afternoon.


  1. Your class will love making these adorable little bags. Great gifts too!

  2. Hi Hettie, and thanks - I'll join in and make a few of these too. Nice to be bumped out of the old potholder rut when thinking of working on FMQ skills. I do too little patchworking and quilting altogether, and must make a fresh start. Still not blogging, either. It's a crying shame. Margaret
