Coming fast on the heels of the wedding reception was Christmas. At the same time we were planning the next set of classes for the shop. Of course new classes means new samples. There were also some patterns we got at market that we wanted to get samples made for and up in the shop.
All the shop girls sewed like crazy to get everything done. (except me, I still need borders on two quilts). I am a baaad girl.
One of the new classes that I will be teaching is a chevron quilt called Party Girl. This will be a follow up for beginners. The quilt is giant HST. It was a lot of fun to sew! I think I will make another with more colors and maybe smaller HST.
Another new class is a string quilt. The pattern is Wrapped up in Memories by Bonnie of Bonnie and Camille. I am using the pattern for the basics of string piecing and then adding in more string ideas . I think it will be fun. And I can use up some of my strings making sample blocks for class. For the class sample I used a jelly roll and just trimmed to different sizes. It is missing a border too.
The last new class I will be teaching is basic embroidery. I plan to do some straight lines for them to sew on to learn the stitches. Then they will get this design to stitch if they want to. We have had a lot of customers who want to do some cute stitching projects but say they don't know how.
We also have some really cute bag classes coming up. Maybe if I take the class I will actually make the bag?? I will ask permission to post those bags.
I enjoy keeping up with all my blogging friends and what they are doing. I hope to get back into regular personal sewing and regular posts here too.
