teaching at OCAD

In January I was invited to introduce OCAD fibre students to the wonderful world of quilting.  I was given 2 sessions of 3 whole hours to teach the A-Z of quilting arts!! Seeing this as perfectly do'able I took on the challenge and had a great group of very engaged and eager students.  Some of whom had never used a sewing machine!  It was lots of fun and I am proud to share with you the completed piece of one of my students.  Shiva pieced the elements, free motion quilted, and appliqued the rose and butterflies  (the butterflies are her 2 children and she is the rose)  and then she created and applied her own binding.  I think this is a remarkable effort for her first time quilting.  Way to go Shiva!
