First Quilt for Karen




Karen has just come along to the Textile Thursday Session
and she was a cross-stitcher but wants to learn Patchwork and Quilting.
She had been given a charm pack and started putting it together 
as a quillo sized quilt.
The masking tape labels are to help sew together, 
especially as you need to
collect it all together to go home. 
Or move it due to space constraints.
If you don't label you often find you put them back 
together in a totally different sequence.
This makes it easier.
Karen got to grips with the rotary cutter really quick and
learnt lots of lessons with the seven eights 
(when making the half triangles).
Karen brought along the cross-stitch she had framed to give
to her Mum.
Beautiful!
