Class is Back in Session

Homeschool girls sewing class has started a new 8-week session.

The first three classes are being spent on quilt blocks to practice cutting and sewing straight edges. Most of the girls have chosen to turn their blocks into Tote Bags.

Sample Blocks on point for a twin quilt.

Here the girls work on their blocks; Stacked Strips, Two Step, Nine Patch, Churn Dash, and Friendship Star were all choices to make.

Pressing the fabric to prep it for cutting.
The three steps to sewing a quilt block:

A Field Trip to the Quilting in the Tetons Quilt Show to view techniques and see a variety of quilts. Favorite quilts of the show.
