    Thanks so much for all your wonderful suggestions!!!

    I knew this would be the best place to get some heads together to brainstorm with me!

    I knew if I sent this out with the thought "if you were to take a sampler course, what would you want to learn" I would get some great ideas!

    I have a little more idea what and how I'm going to do this project.

    I promise to keep you all posted!!!

    If you can think of anything else, just send it this way, or send me a PM

    Cheers!

    Paper piecing is quite easy actually. I do have plans to make a paper piece block too :)

    Oh, Aggi, what a fantastic class!

    I don't have any additional ideas to add to your list since
    most of them I don't know how to do yet! But, your idea is
    wonderful. I like the idea of giving everyone a taste of all
    of the techniques that go into quilting.

    (I want to take it too!)

    Hi Klue - speaking of which :D Any chance you'd be willing to do a tutorial for those of us that are clueless on the continuous prarie points? You are so talented and I'd love to get a lesson or two from you - seems like the prarie points would be a fun thing to learn...

    Might consider having students select several squares and research the history of them. I have always enjoyed learning about the background of particular patterns.

    Have to include a crazy quilt square! Also perhaps a stack-and-wack and a fused design of their own creation.

    Thanks for the suggestions.. I had them on my list already before I posted this thread!!! Those two blocks show great techniques too!

    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.
    Sorry ghostrider, I did not see that you had posted it before I did :oops: :oops: :oops:
    Inner City blocks would be a good choice, too!! I would defineately need a class for those!!! :wink: :D

    How about a pre-class to select fabrics and fabric preparation?
