New Years Resolution: Learning to Quilt Pt. 1 - Piecing

At the beginning of the year, we shared with all of you some of our sewing New Year's resolutions.  As you may recall, Hether, Jessica and Joy wanted to learn how to quilt.  A few weeks ago, with some help from our own Jo, they started off on their quilting journey!

For their first lesson, they concentrated on piecing.  They each pieced two blocks, which are all now framed and hanging proudly here in the Arrow offices.

Now that they have had some piecing practice, their next project will be pieced and quilted.  They'll be working on this cute beach bag, which can be found in the spring issue of Fresh Quilts.  Isn't it cute?

If you love the project and would like to join us, the spring issue is out now.  You can pick it up at your local quilting/sewing shop, Wal-Mart, CVS, Barnes & Noble, and many other places.  We may even give one away as swag, so keep watching our Facebook page!

And please, feel free to keep us posted on how you're doing with your New Year's resolutions.  We love hearing about them!
