I made a vow that this year I am going to take a photo of every one of my Quilting 101 classes at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store in Orland Park, Illinois. I taught my first class of the year tonight and, as usual, we had a great time and both of my students, Debbie and Sandie, did a great job, as you can see by their quilt blocks and the smiles on their faces! Okay, one of the smiling faces is mine, because Debbie was a little camera shy tonight, so I stood in for her and let her snap this picture. This block is called "Hole in the Barn Door" and it's the block I use to teach rotary cutting, perfecting the scant 1/4" seam, interlocking seams and block construction. Year 2013 is off to a good start!
