Quilt Class

Quilt Class was fun today
Ines joined us, the centre of this huge quilt has now been stabelized using the trusty walking foot. Ines came to learn free motion quilting ready to do the pieced blocks and the huge borders...
Left to right this is ... Anita, Amalia, Ana and Ines. There was a shot of them all posing pretty, legs aloft, but I wasn't quick enough to shoot it... shame!
Ana's own creation... lasagne in the middle with a pieced border, the fabrics are from a "Jelly Roll" bought at Patch-Mania in Oeiras. Lovely colours, Ana quilted it today.

This is Ines practicing free motion quilting, she did very well and will be an expert in no time... which is just as well with that huge quilt waiting...

Our "Blue Lady" came to visit too. these two projects are hand quilted. with gold and red thread.
a closer shot of the lovely redwork.

Well, that was the last quilt class at Arco Iris for December, I think we will be back to lessons on 7th January.
There is always the Quilt Cave for All Day Sewing.... Next week, 18th December and Monday 29th December, check the Quilt Cave Calander (top right) for any changes.
