Another new class conquered! Last Saturday was my first time teaching a Free Motion Quilting class and everyone had such a great time learning about free motion quilting.
The machines cooperated so students were able to practice their speed and moving the quilt sandwich around. Everyone needed slight tension adjustments but once we got them adjusted we were off! I enjoyed sharing information about Aurifil thread and why I love to use it for quilting. Many students had never used Aurifil before and everyone had great results with it the first time.
Last week I experimented with printing directly onto the paper side of fusible web using an ink jet printer. This should save me some time making templates for classes. I’m hoping to do a photo tutorial on it sometime soon.
And this past weekend I taught two classes. The first one was a really fun quick project showing everyone how to make a TV Tray Pressing board. I got so many great comments on how fun the class was and everyone left with a finished project!
I also had a student bring in some finished Midi Bags from a class I taught over the summer:
I taught a melted crayon class and organized a new 150 crayon set by color. 150 crayons is a lot of crayons let me tell you.
And I’ve updated my Class Schedule page to include some new stuff! One of the new things I’m teaching next year is a Jelly Roll Race Quilt so here it is on display at Gigi’s Fabrics.
