Quilt Class

Another convert!!! The Blue Lady (Rosalia) has decided to join the machine workers. Paula got out one of the class machines for her to use. It was very funny, as I took the photo she was admitting that she didn't know how to work the Bernette machine.... this is a "now what do I do?" moment! She quickly discovered where to put the thread spool though and was soon sewing away to finish her quilt top. Next week the borders and backing....

Here you can see Rosalia actually sewing on the machine. At the other end of the table is Ines, still working on the blocks for her sampler quilt and another new lady, Ana, is hand stitching her first block.

Sao is ironing her quilt top ready to make the quilt sandwich and Dona Paula is working on another project.

After making the quilt sandwich, Sao began hand quilting her table runner. She is not used to using a thimble but she will soon get the hang of it.

Here Dona Paula is 'fussy cutting' animal fabric ready to make a log cabin baby quilt.

We don't have a lot of spare space at quilt class. Sometimes it is a tight squeeze to get from A to B but it is all part of the fun..... you soon make friends with everyone when you are this close!!! he he he
Beta is trimming her baby quilt, she will now make the binding for it. Quilt project number two is already planned... the pattern and colour scheme is already selected!

This is the end of the quilt class.
Ladies waiting to buy fabrics and to pay their accounts.
Do you recognise the lady on the left patiently waiting for us??
It is the lady with the Kaffe Fassett fabrics!!!! Paula ordered more for us... only three weeks to wait............... !!
