Quick finish

Sort of...Karen is bringing two of her kids over on Saturday for a beginning quilting lesson. I had thought about having them make this wall hanging, pretty simple block, only about 30 inch square, should be able to make it in one day.

Even as simple as it is, it still took me about 5+ hours to make it. I think that might be pushing everyone's attention span a bit. So Karen and I decided it would be better to have them make one block and border it - they can make a little table topper out of it or maybe a pillow.

I need to figure out how I'm going to quilt this. Don't really want to do just stitch in the ditch...hmmm.

I think one block with borders is a better idea for beginners. Be sure to show us how you end up quilting your piece.

One block is best for a beginner for sure. I used to teach beginner classes in both the shop I worked at and then in our guild that had bunches of new quilters just wanting to learn. Some are ready to advance on quickly while others learn a tad slower. Keeping to the one will make your teaching easiest.
