A Beginning Quilter

For the second time now, one of my sewing students has branched into quilting, and she just recently completed her first quilt. It was so fun to teach her this new skill, and she did a great job!


She picked out her own fabrics and after cutting out the squares, figured out how she wanted them laid out. Then came weeks and weeks of sewing, pinning, measuring, tying, and more. And then with much excitement, she finished it just in time for the cold December days. It's starting to feel a lot more like winter here, and there is even snow in the forecast!

    I hope that you are doing well. I feel so badly that I am taking so long to reply to your email. I have so many things that I'd like to write, I'm not getting it finished :)

    Blessings, dear friend!

  4. So beautiful!

    Quilting is something I would love to do but it is so intimidating!

    Baby steps - I need to learn to machine sew properly first!

    It was so nice to hear from you again! And I am very much looking forward to your e-mail. But I know that you have been busy, so please don't feel bad about taking awhile. It just gives me that much longer to look forward to it!

  9. Quilting can be intimidating, Jenny! I remember wanting to learn for several years before I finally got some books from the library and just jumped in. It's been a lot of fun! And as you shared, it helps to take baby steps . . . and yes, learning to machine sew properly would be a good first step.

    If you ever do venture into quilting and have questions or things, I'd be happy to help if I can. Have fun with your sewing!

  11. Oh how beautiful! She did so well! You must be so proud of her! :o) I wish I lived closer so you could teach me. I never lived near my grandmother sadly when I was growing up and she made amazing quilts! I wish I could have learned! :o) Thanks for sharing this! :o)

  12. Thank you for your comment, Nabila! Yes, I am proud of her. :) She has worked hard and patiently, and as a result, her quilt turned out so nice.

    I would love it if we lived closer! I know there are a lot of things that I could learn from you as well.

    Your grandmother sounds like a special lady! Even if you weren't able to learn quilting from her, at least you have these memories of her quilts and quilting!
