It's our new annual tradition. I'm determined to teach to fish rather than feed for a day, if you know what I'm saying. It's our 2nd annual beginning quilt class, charity quilt sew-a-thon, modern-day quilting bee.
I've debated long and hard about the lessons I learned last year. Things like:
1. don't use a pattern with multiple pieces on the first try. (wayyy too many moving parts)
2. don't try and teach a pattern with angles.
3. find a couple of other people to learn how to sew it before the day, so you're not running around like a chicken with your head cut off.
4. most people don't want handouts
5. most everyone is a visual learner.
I'm debating between a couple of different patterns....
Both of these patterns are freebies from Wombat Quilts
I like the first as a better choice for a class since there are no angles, but I love flying geese so naturally I'm drawn to the second one. LOL We'll see once we talk it through with our group.
So watch for updates in April!
