Lesson two for the Junior Quilters was held at "All About Sewing" Charmhaven yesterday.
We had 6 young ladies trying to finish their small quilts.
It was so hectic that I didn't get to take any photo's during the day. I took this one of my daughters quilt once the dust had settled and we were back home.

We were learning about 1/4" seams..how to sew straight...how to line up the intersection of two seams when joining rows together...how to sew borders on correctly....how to NOT throw a hissy-fit when the bobbin runs out...that it's hard to sew straight if you're talking.....many things really.
Next week we will be learning to pin baste our small quilt and also how to quilt it using a walking foot. If time permits we will hopefully cover "binding"

Rebecca, Paige and Charlotte

I am really enjoying working on this quilt...but feel I will need to get some more fabric... I don't have enough variety of red and blues. Happy with the progress so far. I am back quilting at night while it's still school holidays...so I am not getting a lot of time on my own personal sewing.
