Chain Stitching

I am finally quilting again!  I have to have this quilt finished by Friday for a quilt show.  I need to get busy!  I tried to quilt it on my industrial that I do my FMQ on, but it did not want to straight stitch, so I had to move to a smaller treadle.
 We started a making a quilt in my sewing class and have a new student.  AJ is only seven so her mom stays and helps her.  Zoe and Alayna made their first chain stitches.
 All three of them are learning how to use the rotary cutter.

AJ's mom snapped a picture of me helping AJ with the rotary cutter.
 They are also learning how to iron.
I really enjoy teaching these classes!

Today is the last day to enter my giveaway for an ice cream sandwich maker.

How neat. The girls look very proud of their chain pieces. I hope they continue quilting.
