I find such great joy in teaching new quilters.
My dentist's daughter, also my dentist, wanted to learn how to make quilts.
I told her I would be happy to teach her how.
She and I went to the LQS and chose some fabric,
I lent her a pattern, Take 5 and she came to our Wednesday night meetings.
We got her quilt cut out before Christmas.
She hasn't been back due to her work commitments but came back this Wednesday.
Here are the fabrics we chose:
Perfectly Perched by Laurie Wisburn and some Kona solids.
On Wednesday night we were going to lay outthe blocks and realized she forgot her pattern.
She had her hubby take a photo of her pattern and send it to her!
So we laid out the blocks and she wanted me to sew the first block.
I sat down at her new machine and tried to sew, but the feed dogs would not grab the fabric.
I thought they might have been down so I got her manual and found the button and moved it.
Guess what happened?
The feed dogs dropped!
I guess they were up after all, but obviously not working very well.
So I went to move the button again to raise them and it didn't work.
Brand new machine and it's already broken.
We used another machine at the meeting and made her first block.
Isn't she adorable?
I can't wait for next week to make some more blocks!
