Uttoxeter Quilt Class

What a rubbish start for my return to work... I only took these two photos! Note to self... must try harder with photos!
Lizzy started a new project. She loves to make one block quilts and favours only using three fabrics/colours, good for her PMS (Pleasing My Self) She's decided to make 10" Churndash blocks using the delicious Batik 'not too pinky' pinks and got a lot of the cutting done ready for it.
Giggly Gillian also started a new project using browns and sea blues with lovely creams and slightly gold-ish creams. Lots of large HST (Half Square Triangles) randomly stitched together, this should be a quick finish as the HST's are made from 7" squares.
Marisabel saw my now famous 'Tea Bag' and wanted one for her very own self. She was very happy to find this coffee cup fabric so, she studied my Big Quilted Panel Bag tutorial (right side bar) and made all the parts she needed, she practiced free motion quilting on her new Juki machine too, she did a great job! Today she finished quilting round the coffee cups, trimmed up all the pieces and completed the bag, top stitching too, oh, she will put the handles on at home... one happy lady!
 Jenny continued quilting her gorgeous red and cream quilt.
Lovely Lyn was making the corner blocks ready to put her Lilly's Colours top together and Messy Maureen added binding to her cheat quilt then chose her next project... ready for when we meet again. She's going to make a red, white and blue quilt with the blocks set on point to resemble a diamond, ready to raffle it off for charity during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations next year, isn't she good!

We meet again on Tuesday 23rd August, 10am - 3pm, the class is fully booked again... and I will take more pictures!!
I will take more pictures...

Those batiks are lovely as is the coffee cup bag. Yes you had better take more photos, this old brain is worn out trying to use my imagination.
