Quilt Class

September sees the start of more quilt classes at Arco Iris A Metro
School hasn't started yet so we had quite a small group yesterday.
This is Anita's log cabin quilt. She has been working on the quilting over the summer, still quite a lot to do but it is looking fab. The orange fabric she chose for the borders makes the orange centres 'pop'... love it!
Now Anita has started to work on a sampler quilt. The size hasn't been decided yet but all the blocks will have points! Stars and triangles... that's the plan!!
Ann bought a few fat-quarter packs from Paula and during class cut them up in preparation for a Bento Box style quilt.
Clementine is a new lady. She wanted to learn hand piecing. I haven't spoken much Portuguese over the summer so I got a little tongue tied and managed to confuse Clementine a few times... sorry about that Clementine.
With templates made, fabric cut and stitching understood here you can see her progress...
This is the first of three stars for a table runner.
This is Sofia caught arriving late,very late... she does look quite guilty!
Sofia's Square Dance quilt is coming along nicely... all the cutting is done and some of the rows have been sewn together, this has been put on hold for a short while, for good reason...
this is one of two quilts that Sofia will be making next, lovely bright colours again. Someone needs two baby quilts at the same time!!!

More bargains have appeared at Paula's. These are on offer this week only for €3 per metre. Most are very pretty florals, they would also be great as backing fabrics.
