I'm starting a group through my church. I offered to teach some basic quilting techniques and sewing for projects for practical gift ideas - totes, casserole carriers (we are big on pot lucks!), wall hangings, and other... the notice will be in this Sunday's bulletin at church. It is a very small church so we may not have many, but it is a beginning.
I am still pondering how to start... I think I'll need to do a 30 minute basic use of tools (rotary cutting at its safest), then start on a project that can be completed quickly... instant success was so encouraging for me.
My first class was Underground Railroad by Eleanor Burns and while the blocks were fun and very educational - I learned a lot!!!!, it took an awful long time to get it together. However now I see it on the back of my couch and am so proud and remember those years ago when I got started with this passion.
Any ideas about beginning projects? What was your first project and was that a good idea to begin with or ???
All ideas are appreciated...
