I am afraid what they make will look like kids made them! Any suggestions for things to make or for ideas leading this diverse group will be greatly appreciated. I know you guys can help me!

    The first quilt I have ever made was a crib size Hourglass

    I did a Sudoku quilt for a friend who loves Sudoku. It is basically a 9-patch using 9 different FQ's. You put a sashing between each 9-patch block then a bigger border around the outside. I got the pattern from McCall's Quilts (I believe). If you need a copy, I'd be more than happy to send one or attach it here.

    Why not start with making yo-yo's and sew a button in the middle then sew a safety pin on the back. They can sell them as flower buttons or add a magnet instead of a safety pin and it can be a refrigerator magnet.

    Prayer shawls are a nice size, and laptop quilts are great to cover up with while you're watching television in your easy chair. People that do not quilt do NOT see the "novice-ness" in quilts. Don't worry about it, do it unto Him.

    we made aprons for a sale at our church and it was successful. They are easy to make, also potholders and crochet dish cloths sell well.
