At the shoppe where I work, I teach a beginner class. My current sample was getting tired, so I needed to make a new one.
I started with this little stack,
and this is what I came up with. It still needs its' borders.
While making this lap quilt, the ladies will learn accurate cutting, the 1/4" seam, and some strip piecing. The three different blocks should enable them to go on and make more quilts with some confidence.
Now that it's nearly done, I'm glad I took the time to make it. As a matter of fact, there were two women who came in today wondering if we had beginner classes. Hurray for new quilters!
Also, this is week 32 of the hex-a-thon
Enjoy your day.

I love your sample. Traditional blocks with modern fabric. Great combination!
is the hex-a-thon available online? i would love to hex-a-long
Wow I love the colors in that one...I've been staying away from the store I have enough WIP's going...
Nice new sampler quilt:)
Oh my goodness, I love that! I can't quite tell the colors though: is that gray, brown, or kind of a mushroomy gray/brown? Whatever it is, it looks great.
Love the sampler quilt!
Nice sample - We need to get a beginner class/project for our local store and this is a nice simple quilt that can teach a lot of important techniques. Another great hexie!
What's the hex-along? Love that hexie! Very nice new sample for your class. :)

That new hexagon is fancy! I love the colours.
i can't wait to see your hexagons all done. are you going to hand quilt it also?
Week 32 of the hexagon, WTG! I just started and have finished 2 and am loving it.
Love your beginner quilt...and the colours you've chosen. I have just been asked to teach some get inner sewing classes...but mainly dressmaking. Such fun teaching something you love :)
Beautiful colours in your sample quilt. Makes me want to take your introductory quilting class!
Carla- the beginner quilt is very nice. It's neat how it is traditional and contemporary at the same time. Fun for beginner quilters. Another beautiful quilt with great colour choices.
