I have been home from AQS Phoenix for about a week but I had to go to warp drive since I got back to prepare for my classes this month. On Saturday I taught Lines in Longarm Quilting to my Southwest Longarm Group. It was full of laughter, learning and lots of Sew N Tell. I followed it up with my block of the month, Book N Block. I can’t believe that next month is our last month. We have read about 15 novels and completed 22 blocks so far. Sunday, I booked a repeat of the coloring class from last November and filled the classroom. Now I am preparing for my Advanced Binding class that I will be teaching this upcoming weekend. After blogging this morning, I will be back at the sewing machine making class samples.
If you are interested in any my upcoming classes, please email me at Ideal.Stitches@comcast.net I have a Quilted Purse class in March, Quilt As You Go in April and a Block of the Month with a Twist coming in May. This summer I will bring back a Scrappy Class, this one will be made with 2 1/2 inch strips.
I do finish everything that I have to do for classes so its the best way to complete my UFO’s. Some of the quilts you see featured in my classes are ones that I have had on my wish list to do. I know Quilters can get buried in UFO’s so I try to motivate my students to persevere and complete their class projects. In my Block of the Month class we start out with Show N Tell of the previous month’s class block and home fun block. Everyone that bring both completed to class gets a door prize.
You ask what a home fun block is? Well, I give the directions for a simpler block to be done at home during the month. It is not homework because sewing is fun! So it is a home fun block.
So come and join the fun and take a class with Ideal Stitches.
