    I just started a quilting class at our church. We will be making quilts to donate to a hospice here in town. We started with the Schlep bag so I could teach the basics of cutting, keeping 1/4' seams and butting seams for nice sharp corners. Everyone finished in 5 hours...not bad for total newbies!!!! None of these bags in the pics are completely finished.

    Those are so cool, and such a great way to start your class. Now the participants can use them to carry their supplies when they are making those quilts for the hospice.

    I have pictures of some I made and gave away as gifts on Picassa(Sewing Projects), link below. They are fun to make and people really enjoy them.

    Such a happy looking bunch of Ladies ! I like the range in ages, good to see some younger ones getting into quilting.
    Such a good thing to do for others.

    I had not head of the Schlep bag so I had to look it up - very cool. I teach others to sew and this would be a great one to teach as well.

    Awesome! It looks like your class was a success!

    Isn't it wonderful to see newbies make something like a Schlep Bag and get so excited about sewing. I taught the same thing last night and also did a demo on the Tubular quilt. Keep on teaching, we need more sewers!

    This is a wonderful thing you did - and for them to go home with a finished project is awesome. Now they can put their next project into the shlep bag and bring it to your next class!

    What is a tubular quilt? Is there a tutorial on that here in the board? LOL, nevermind that last, I'm going to go look for myself. Always learning here, always, always!!!

    Thanks for all the great comments...it's really encouraging to me.

    I have the 2nd day this Saturday and we will start with the D9P block on 36x48 children's quilts. All the ladies are so excited to learn.

    I wish there was classes like this in the UK as people know quilting is not that big over here which makes me kinda sad.
    I did learn my quilting skills whilst in NY USA and loved it and 8 years later i am still quilting .
