Monday Stitching

 Cynthia made a sandwich with her lovely 10 Minute block quilt and started quilting it... but, since Cynth first started, she could only sew in my very own classroom as she didn't have her very own sewing machine, see I said didn't... Now she has a brand new to her sewing machine that works rather beautifully so she can continue to stitch the days away at home... at least that's the plan!
 Jean Bean finished the last of her Kaleidoscope blocks so it was time to play with the placement of them. She wanted a good mix of the pinks and yellows and, after a few switches and swaps, I think we got it just right. Jean started to add her sashing strips... It's looking rather 'splendid' don't you think.
 The ladies who joined us last Thursday came back to continue with their Railfence Table Runners. This Christmas-y one belongs to Pauline. She was very pleased with her corner stones. Pauline will have Christmas-y fabric for her backing so that the table runner will be double sided, double-y useful! She just ran out of time to make her sandwich so, that will be the first job for her next class,
This quilt sandwich belongs to Carole... it's not going to be a table runner though, 'twill be a wall hanging. This time Mr. Black is looking rather good with the help of the red inner border... what a stunning quilt it is too... Red and black were made to be together were't they!! Carole was just about able to make her sandwich so, next time she'll be quilting.
Glenys's quilt escaped the camera, as did all of the other beautiful projects being made, in my very own classroom. It's so very exciting watching all the quilts coming together!

Ladies these quilts are brilliant. Are you sure this is only your second lesson?
