This past week I spent some time teaching teenagers how to quilt. It was a lot of fun, and a great experience. I decided to focus on paper piecing, and the students made a hot pad for Mother's Day. I talked a bit about colour, and value, the importance of lights and darks, and the scale of the prints. They all seemed to be very appreciative, and happy that they had a finished product at the end. I have always enjoyed working with teenagers, and I look forward to more teaching in the future.
