Quilting Class: Week 1

I am privileged to teach another quilt class this winter.  During this one, we will make a string quilt using 6 1/2" paper squares.  I have four students, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme, and they are already hard at work on the first night.  We don't worry about being neat when we are paper piecing.

We are going to sew the squares together to make a quilt like this

or maybe like this.

Trust me, these strings sewn together are going to turn into something beautiful, useful, and lasting. 

I know it is going to be fun.  We are all so excited to get started! There probably won't be any dining on the dining table for the next twelve weeks, but we are totally okay with that.

This class is made possible by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts.  Thanks!
