My beginners class wrapped up this week. They were all enthused and wanted to know what the next class would be I was teaching, unfortunately they weren't into needle turn appliqué. By the end of Tuesday's class they all had their quilts basted and were starting quilting in the ditch. We had a bit of fun with all the various walking feet and having them work out how to go on the machine. I have to say a couple of them were not exactly easy.
I think next time I will have a follow up class in the pipeline. I will be running another beginners class in the new year, so if you have been thinking about learning to make a quilt and want to know all the basics contact Patchwork by Sea and put your name down for next year, who knows if they get enough interest they might run another one next term. However with my beginners in mind I have been working on something in the background.
Mid September I will be launching a free sampler BOM. I have a bit of a sneak peak. It will be called the Chocolate Marshmallow Sampler and will run for 6 months. Patterns will be available for free for one month and once the month is up the blocks a new set will go up and the previous months will be available sale at my Etsy shop as an instant download.
I should have most of the details finalised on the weekend so watch this space.
