    Quilt top chosen for my class

    Recently queried what to do for a beginning quilting class I will be teaching two co-workers. This is what I came up with after showing them some photos, to get a feel of their interest. It will finish about 41 inches square. I think this will fit the bill. Thoughts??

    Maybe try the warm wished layout? This is a great beginner project.

    It's very simple but should do well. I started my co-workers with the 10 minute table runner. :-)

    Looks great and yet will be simple for beginners.
    Will they be using the same fabric or will they choose their own?

    I am not familiar with the warm wish layout, could you explain that? Search of this site came up empty.

    They will be choosing their own fabric. I am excited to see what they choose. I know one will be a dog theme.

    Looks very nice. Best to start simple so they can finish it and feel proud of their accomplishment.

    It will be a good beginners project. You are very smart to give them some thing they can accomplish and in a decent time frame.

    It's very pretty! They should enjoy working on it and be able to finish it without any problems - best kind for beginners!

    Here is a link to the warm wishes pattern. Basically if you turn some of the rail fence blocks you will have it. Great beginner quilt

    Oh, I found it, how different it looks, with just the spin of two of the strip sets. Thank you! Now I can offer a choice of placement!

    I second the motion for a warm wishes lay out for your design -- it really stands out when viewing the quilt from a few feet away. That way you can still make the same blocks, just lay them out slightly differently. It's perfect for beginner quilters. Good for you for teaching them!

    I like this pattern and that you've included a large block for the main fabric. It should really show off her dog fabric and you can show them how to fussy cut if that will improve the overall look. Good idea for a beginner class.

    It certainly does fit the bill and they will be thrilled when it is done as they will be able to do it without any trouble because of the simplicity of the pattern. Simple patterns sometimes make the most beautiful quilts.

    I like it. Simple enough for a beginner but also very pretty.

    It is a good starter. Gives them the basics of cutting, piecing and combining to make a quilt.

    Thank you for all of your kind words of encouragement. I am excited, first class is Thursday. I was thinking this will take two 2-hour classes? They also mentioned paying for the classes, no clue about that? I think they will be offended if I don't take something, so I was thinking 5 per class for each???
