The first class I taught was on Thursday afternoon and I was delighted to have a full class for my Pave the Way pattern. This is such a great class!!! You go over so many basic piecing units and then some great tricks to have them all come together with perfect points. Everyone did such a great job and their blocks are all just amazing!!! And this is a lot of piecing for a three hour class and just a good portion of the ladies finished their block in class and I even had one student finish both the A and B blocks in class time. So awesome!!!
And Friday Afternoon I got to do a Trunk Show of my quilting journey. This is always so fun to get to share just how amazing this industry is and my absolute love for quilting!!! And one of the gals in the show was kind enough to share some pics with me. So sweet of her!!! Trunk shows are always so fun, the only hard part is deciding which quilts to bring and share :) When you are making 35-45 quilts a year, they tend to stack up, tee hee hee.
I started with 75 quilts pulled from piles but quickly realzied that was to many for an hour. So I managed to narrow it down to 50 to bring and share. But still, it's a good thing I like to talk fast, because we flew through that hour. I had so much fun sharing my quilting journey and I hope that those that were in attendance were able to learn some great little tidbits or be a little quilty inspired to help them along their quilting journey as well ;)
And that was my two days teaching at the Utah Quilting and Sewing Marketplace It truly was such a fun few days getting to sew with so many amazing people and just enjoying the general quilty atmosphere. This was my first time teaching at UQSM and I hope it won't be my last because I absolutely loved it!!!
