This week, my beginners learned how to make half square triangles and I got a very much appreciated "wow" when I exposed the first HST for them. It might seem like the same old, same old sometimes, but what a kick I get out of seeing the pleasure on someone's face when they "get it".
Three of my other classes are doing Topsy, and everyone is doing a grand job with New York Beauties, Kaleidoscope blocks and foundation pieced Stars.
And my other two classes are planning their own piece of work, building up to it by learning the key elements of design.
A few weeks ago we were talking and playing with colour and I had made this sample block that I thought made an exciting colour wheel exercise.
If anyone is interested in the pattern for this block let me know and I will put it onto Google Docs.
Meanwhile, a couple of snapshots of class in progress on Thurday.........
Relaxing with a wee glass of red now.
