Good morning all. I have just joined and very excited to be a part of this. Was wondering about general pointers for beginners quilting/sewing classes for kids. Thinking about running a school holiday program and looking for some ideas, what you have found works best, what to avoid, age range etc Thanks a million.*

Any suggestions will be most appreciated.

I have a new embroidery collection of redwork chickens that sewed on my embroidery machine. After I made a few samples I decided to put them together in a quilt. I spent many hours searching quilt patterns to find one to put the chicken in the middle. I finally laid the blocks on the floor and the the quilt designed itself. I hope you like chickens as much as I do

Your projects are nicely done, good job.
