Uttoxeter Quilt Class

Not all of the ladies have their fabric sorted out for the next project so I thought I would teach Paper Piecing. I took in little kits, enough to make this little tree, kinda Christmas green... which makes it a bit Christmassy... don't you think?
This is Normal Maureen's tree. By the end of the day it was backed, sandwiched, quilted and the binding was sewn on! Maureen's been practicing her half square triangles ready for the next project too.
Jenni's tree.... the corners are a little different... it is always good to learn about 'fudging'. This mini quilt had borders in Christmas fabric at the end of the lesson. I think she said that it would be a pot holder when it's finished.
Gillian's very Christmassy tree. She is going to add a little embroidery to this mini quilt... we did suggest a partridge and a pear but I think Gillian decided on a robin.... he he he

The ladies did show signs of not actually liking paper piecing not long after we started... as do most people when they first start to learn. They now "get it" and will try a further paper pieced tree for homework, because they love the accuracy it gives.

Our next meeting is Tuesday 29th December.
