Teaching Quilting

Teaching a child to quilt can be a wonderful experience...

Using a miniature sewing machine.


Back-stitching to secure the patchwork.

Hard at work.

Foot pedal can be a hand control.


Spring colors surround the paper-pieced square.

Paper-piecing is a great first-time sewing project for a child since the line shows exactly where to sew. This quilt was made for her first-grade teacher.

Teaching adults can be fun, too...
