Another Quilt Top . . .

that's ready to be put together and quilt.
This "stacked coins" quilt (48"x57") is made from the leftovers of the "boxed in" quilt (58"x58") . . . how fun is that!!!  One 12 pack of  fat quarters and 3 1/2 yards of background fabric made these two quilt tops. 
Of course there is that tiny little border strip there and the binding to purchase, as well as all the backing fabric . . . but I still have two quilt tops!!!  AND I love them both.  
These are actually class samples for a quilt workshop that is being planned for February and they really need to get done as soon as they can.  Unfortunately, once again, I do not have enough backing fabric to complete these and all the yardages have been added to an ongoing and constantly growing shopping list for the next time I'm in "the big lights". 
 What do you think?  Would these two samples make you want to sign up for a beginner's class?
Too easy?  Too difficult?
Let me know what you think - PLEASE!!!!

I think the stacked quilt is a perfect beginners quilt. I absolutely love the boxed in one.

I think boxed in is the perfect class - even experienced quilters would want to have a go - it's so eyecatching.

I'm a beginner Quilter and they both look fabulous to me! I'd totally take your class.

I love them both and I am certain they would be projects I would sign up for. Their vibrant colors are inspiring and the patterns are not intimidating for a new comer at all! Gosh! I would sign up for the workshop even if I have been sewing for a few years!

They are both ideal beginner's projects - the stacked coins would be good for teaching an accurate seam allowance, while Boxed In would be a good exercise in using colour.
