I'm a Teacher!!!

Starting next week, I'll be teaching a four-week quilt class at my LQS.  Yikes!

Atlantic Fabrics is a family-owned business with six locations in Nova Scotia.  I would say the store is about 50/50 craft supplies and fabric.  The classes they have offered over the years have been traditional, but they want to start offering modern classes.

So as a start, I'll be teaching a simple Plus baby quilt.  So far there are five registered for the class.


I'll be teaching rotary cutting and chain piecing methods during the class.



Two of my current WIP's are two bags that I hope to get finished during the Bag It 2016 quilt along hosted by Patty at Elm Street Quilts.

I have fabric chosen to make another Sew Together Bag.  You can read about my first one here.  If you decide to sew one, make sure you follow the tutorial over at The Quilt Barn.



And I finally decided on fabric for a Maker's Tote by Anna @ Noodlehead.  Here is what it's supposed to look like.


I'm hoping I can take the fabrics below and sew them into a something that resembles the above.

  5. Well, now, won't you have fun! Teaching, and sharing what you know, is so fulfilling. Have lots of fun with your new venture! You've inspired me to dig out my Sew Together Bag and do a fabric pull. I'll be at Atlantic Fabrics in New Glasgow next week, so if I need zippers, I can get them then. Enjoy your day! XO
