Quilt Class

What a busy morning...
Ines has returned from her travels to Japan. She bought lots of lovely fabrics there and brought them in to show to the ladies, lots of "oooos & arrrrrs"
Amalia has been busy, three table runner tops now, two need to be quilted, one just needs the binding stitching by hand
Here Amalia is learning paper piecing, she almost cracked it when .....
oooops, paper piecing uses a very small stitch length and it is horrible... horrible to undo... but she managed to keep smiling....
Ana with her lovely paper pieced tree.... little pieces of thread decorate her sweater to prove she made it herself... he he he
Remember Amalia's scrap tin... it's overflowing already!
Rosario also learned paper piecing, she is adding a log cabin border to her tree to get the right size for a festive cushion.
Alda, another paper piecing tree in the making...
Alda had been busy sewing at home, she has finished her beginner project... The Rail Fence...
Lovely bags from yummy fabrics....
A baby bargello quilt top in the making...
Isn't this sweet.. a project in a cute tin, this is a Moda Jelly Roll treasure from Japan, I think..
Noemia is cutting 100 3 1/2" squares ready to start her Pineapple Blossom
Ines, never one to choose the easy quilts, is challanging herself with this project. 60 degree angles on triangles... not for the faint hearted.
Rosalia (Our Blue Lady) came to visit. This is Red work, she did a fabulous job on this project!
I was so surprised to see that she signed her work with her new name! ha ha ha
This backing is made from her husband's shirts, I wonder whether he has noticed???

Hi Angela, the cute tin was actually bought at Patch-mania, no need to go as far as Japan for that one... hope you're doing well, I miss working with you all at quilt camps, but life is just too busy right now... see you soon. Ines Touzet
