Monday Classroom

 For homework Cynthia had carefully cut out all of the 6" squares needed to make a lap quilt with the 10 Minute Block method. See the floral fabric at the top on the right, that was the focus fabric when Cynth was choosing the others, very bright and summery. She got quite a few blocks put together during the morning so she has hand stitching for homework.
 Penelope Baskerville finished her Railfence Table Runner but I forgot to take a picture of it (Sorry Pen) She purchased this rather gorgeous fabric to make a Mat & Ruler Bag, now then... Penelope has only been to class about seven times, maybe eight. When she arrived on the first day, she didn't even know how you made the needle go up and down on a sewing machine... look at this picture closely... she's doing fabulous free-motion quilting already... and she breaths while she's stitching!!...
PM Pam pieced the backing fabrics and made a sandwich with this beautiful quilt she's making for her grand daughter, it's a big one... just before doing this, she pieced another backing for a big play mat and sandwiched that too... there's going to be a lot of quilting done over the next few days... who needs sleep anyway?

I adore the fabric Penelope is using, which suprises me as its quite a bold pattern - its stunning x
