Still Teaching FMQ Classes


I started teaching FMQ classes last year at my local quilt shop, and I am happy to say that I am still teaching classes there.  I teach about one beginning class every other month.  I really enjoy sharing my love of free-motion quilting with my students.  I have even had one student take my basics class twice.  The classroom is a little small, so I have anywhere from three to eight students in each class.

I took a few pictures before my students came to share here on my blog.  I demonstrate on one of the store machines, usually a Baby Lock Crescendo.  I have some quilts and table runners on display and for examples at the front of the classroom.


Then I displayed my most recent finish, a class sample, and my first FMQ project on the wall.


I tell my students to not compare their beginning to my middle.  I think it helps them to see where I started with my free-motion quilting.

I look forward to teaching more classes this year.

XX,
Jasmine

  1. That's wonderful to display your different stages. It helps them to see where they can go with some practice, and to see you used to be where they are. I hope you are getting some younger people in your classes!

  2. Sounds like fun Jasmine. That's so smart to have examples of your quilting progression - I bet it really helps your students to see that.
