    you could also teach them how to do a flange or piping along the sashing strips and you could do continuous prairie points along the binding.

    I think that the most challenging (and aggrevating) block is half and quarter triangles. Also the half square triangles that border an on-point quilt. I think that they should be introduced slowly and the 3/8th and 7/8th measurements stressed. They add so much to the quilt yet they are so intimidating. Good luck and hope the result is many great quilts.

    I guess maybe this time I should talk a little louder, eh? :oops:

    Partial seams is another technique, as used in Bright Hopes.
    Also, Inner City is a good block for Y seams and is not often taught.
    Be aware that flanges and piping added to interior seams, like sashing, are a bear to avoid if the sampler is to be machine quilted. You might want to stick with the outside edge for a learning project like this.
