My oldest D has suddenly taken and interest in quilting. YIPPEE YAH!!!! She has always been the career girl. She doesn't own a machine,but will get one if really sparks her interest. :mrgreen: HEH! HEH! She doesn't know that it is addictive and I'm not going to tell her. :twisted: Now she wants to start at hand quilting and piecing, which is just fine,but I can't give her much help as I have never done it. So while she was here in GA with us for a couple of days after Christmas I gave her some instructions on crumb quilting with a paper foundation.
My question is.... is this the best one to try,she hasn't started yet, or is the one I saw on the Tutes of Patricia's Spanish Butterfies in my Pineapple shampoo, an easier one which makes a beartiful block and looks like you worked really hard at it. By the way Patricia I really like that my scraps will take a beating. :mrgreen: That name really sticks. :lol:
I am going to give her this site addy so she can look for herself and if she gets into trouble it will help her. Or if there is a pattern someone can suggest that is a great beginner for had piecing please this inquiring mind wants to know.

BillsBonBon, I'm sure whatever you teach her she'll love. When I have new students I tend to lean toward the 9 patch/rail fence. It's a great way to learn the basics. People who love a good challenge may not find it terribly interesting at first but if you're dealing with learning rotary cutting, measuring, fabric choices, plus a more difficult block it will be overwhelming. There is a wonderful tutorial about the 9 patch....it's ShellyQs I believe.

Thanks Bunches Retorgirl, it is exciting when a grown daughter wants to do the same thing that means a lot to the Mom. We are going to have lots of fun with this.
