Beginning Quilting

We all had to start somewhere, right?  I have thoroughly enjoyed the four ladies who have been coming to the shop for beginner lessons.  Today was our last meeting.  They have been making my "Six-Inch Sampler" pattern.  Stella finished binding today:
Here Betsy is trimming her quilt, ready to hand-finish the binding:

Lynda still has a little bit of quilting to do.  Here she is, checking out Betsy's progress:
It's always fun to share and meet new people.  We had a great time together.  Our fourth, Ann, was not able to attend on the last day.

Trivia:  The first quilt class or workshop I ever took was in 1985, taught by Augusta Cole.  We made a Lone Star wall hanging.  I was so clueless that I had no idea it was way, way too difficult for a first quilt.  It took a year, but I finally got it done.  And haven't stopped quilting since.  Love it.

Everyone is a beginner, these girls look like they know what they are doing!

Very nice ladies! Don't you just love the creativity of quilting; each their own unique style; yet the same pattern.
