I am a teacher!!!!

Last Saturday I gave my first Quilting 101 class!!!

Ok I only had one student...but that way I was able to test my class plan and see if it worked in the time I had.
My class included

-Essential Tools
-Example of different quilt making technique
-How to choose your fabric (with a bit on color Theory)
-Preparing and cutting fabric
-Quilt construction (strip piecing, chain piecing , making HST, pressing the seam, butting the seam and calculations for borders
-Sandwish ing
-Hand and machine quilting

I think it cover the whole thing :)

My student was able to make her first "finished quilt" in the 3.5 hours of the class and left with a smile on her face. I can't ask for more :)

This is the "Quilt" I had her made....I think it cover the basics quilt well.(This one is mine)

Next Saturday I will give the class again and I might have as many as 4 students, and I have to give it in french and in english at the same time!!!! Can't wait :)


  1. Congratulations! I love teaching and getting people started on the path of quilting is so much fun.

  2. what a lucky student to have one to one teaching so good that she went home with a completed piece too

  3. Sounds like an excellent class that I think you'll be able to offer over and over. I'm sure your students will be very happy to take their beginning class with you. Congratulations.


  4. Congratulations on teaching your first class. It's such a pretty little quilt.

  5. Congratulations on your first class - and what a great student piece resulted. Good luck for all your future teaching!
