Quilt Class

It worked! I went to Paula's with my camera in my pocket AND remembered to use it! Feeling very pleased with myself!
We had a great class today. 2 more new ladies joined us. This photo is of Marina's first quilt to be finished. She started it before Christmas so that explains the seasonal fabrics, this is the table runner that we normally do as a beginner project for those learning to hand piece projects. Though this one was pieced by machine and hand quilted.....

This (below) is also Marina's project, it is already in a batting sandwich ready to be machine quilted after class this weekend. She is also going to our Jenny Bowker workshop on Saturday. This is the back of her head, beautiful hair but too shy to smile for the camera!

This is Noemia with her first project. She pieced the first block by hand then switched to machine piecing, hand work is very special, but it takes so much longer and she couldn't wait to get something finished. Here you can see Paula too, who jumped into the photo at the last minute, she just got back from her skiing holiday, the two tone face was not my camera playing tricks! he he

This is Ines, she was one of the new ladies last Wednesday, she took her quilt home today already in a batting sandwich ready to quilt. She needs to wait for her new walking foot. Meanwhile she is already planning her next project. This is a larger version of the Rail Fence table runner that we teach as the first project for machine piecing, it is very good for learning to cut and sew accurately. And this last photo.... da da, da daaaaaa .....Is the Kaffe Fassett fabric samples that a sales lady bought to Paula's shop today .......... and Paula ordered about 20 bolts of it...... FANTASTIC!!??? There were so many to choose from, of course we wanted them all, they are delicious, but 20 is a good start. I can't wait for the delivery... but it will take 3 to 4 weeks... time to save up a few Euros!
