It is no secret that teaching classes is not my love. I get nervous in groups and just feel so inadequate but the request for classes is large. Solution…Daniel Minde. Daniel is a a teacher at a middle school and is so excited to share his love of quilting. He is fun, energetic and an amazing individual. His enthusiasm is contagious and he challenges himself to learn new skills constantly. I wish I had half his energy.
Daniel has graciously agreed to teach a block of the month from Whirligig Designs. The pattern is Greystone and is done in batiks from Island Batiks.
The program will include all the fabric for the top, binding, pattern and the foundation pieces required to complete the quilt. Classes will be held once a month for 6-7 month (depending on progress) and begin on April 15th. They will also be available online for remote classes.
The quilt finishes 58″ x 74″ and is sure to please.
A little about Daniel:
Daniel’s mom was an avid quilter, making quilts for friends and family. When a new grandchild was announced and with the loss of his mother to cancer, Daniel was determined to carry on her legacy and promptly taught himself to quilt. He made an adorable baby quilt, followed by a second Oklahoma State quilt for a friend. That was just the beginning. He continually tries to methods and challenges himself to complete more and more complex quilts…his latest challenge being Judy Niemeyer quilts. He has shared his love of the craft with students at his school, taking his planning period to do so. His enthusiasm is infectious and you won’t find a more friendly and fun teacher.
You will not regret joining this class. The laughter will be abundant with a ‘little’ quilting in between.
