Do you remember my quilting class? I was asked to teach basic piecing to a class of 25 eight to ten year olds at a local school.
Here they are with their first top.
They finished two quilt tops, which were quilted (not by me) and ready to be bound this week.
Obviously scrap quilts done on a budget, but with great enthusiasm. Each child completed a 9-patch of 5″ squares.

If anyone out there needs to know how to teach basic piecing to a large (or small) group, let me know. I have an outline, but nothing that I am ready to publish. The piecing was all done by hand, which, strangely enough, is better for absolute beginners.
