As you know, I help out with the sewing club at lunchtimes at the school my children attend; the lady who runs it is very talented. A number of us not so talented helpers suggested that she should run classes for adults and guess what? She offered to teach us, for free, at her house about once a month. The second meeting was today but my 4 yr old daughter was up all night (yep from 1-7am being sick so we both spent the morning in bed) so unfortunately I missed it. However I have my homework to show you from the last lesson.
We were taught log cabin and 9 and four patch blocks, which we then had to go home and make a 12 inch block incorporating those techniques. I haven’t shown the teacher my effort so don’t judge me too badly if I have got it all wrong, but I am happy with the outcome.
The idea is she will show us how to make a sampler quilt so we get an idea about different quilt designs. I am very excited about it, and am now really looking forward to the next meeting.
