Teaching Wrap Up

Been a bit MIA the last couple of weeks,  we've had Tennis Finals and breakup for the Summer Season. Maestro's Team got to the grand final but nerves got to him and the rest of the team I think and they lost.  Squids team got knocked out the week before but the Club as a whole went really well and came away with quite a few shields this year.

Both the kids ended up with trophy's, Maestro for winning the District Tournament for Div1 Doubles with a good mate and Squid for the Winter Grand final.  They have really enjoyed their tennis this year and that is the main thing.

This week was the final lesson for my Skill Builder Class.  This week I talked about different setting ideas for a Sampler.  Gave them the maths for on point layout as well as the sashed sampler that I made for the class.  I also did a demo of binding, which is hard to fit into the beginners class as the last week we are trying to get all the quilts basted.

It was a great class and every quilt is going to be different.  One of my beginner students from this terms class has even finished a second quilt on her own which is just fantastic because it means I have given them the confidence to branch out and do more.

I did some shopping today. I'm collecting fabric for my new appliqué project and I thought these fabrics might be good added to the mix.

The tiger and rabbit are what I have chosen for the cornerstones in my Metro Ring Quilt that I hope to get back to this weekend.

Wishing everyone a lovely and relaxing Easter.
