Last week was the final class for the spring sewing session that I teach. We're off for the summer now and it's always a little sad to know that we won't be seeing each other for a few months, but the last class is always fun with lots of show and tell and a pot luck. I have door prizes and we draw for quilt blocks that we have made. I think this was my best session yet -- a good time was had by all. Here are some pictures of quilts (mostly tops or "flimsys") that people brought to show. Below is Lori with a project that she put together from a pattern she got through a program at one of the local quilt shops. I can't remember the name of it, but it is just wonderful.
Next she showed her version of one of the quilts that I presented this session. I called it Novelty Boxes. Very fast and easy.
Oh dear, here she is again with another project that I presented this time around. String pieced green squares alternated with applique flowers. Very pretty!
Here's one of my new students, Tippy, basting a quilt to be hand quilted over the summer. She quilted years ago and is getting back into it. It's been a while - she had never seen a rotary cutter!!
Here's Susan's quilt that she made for a challenge that one of the local quilt shops was having last year. We had never seen the final product, so she brought it in to show us. Nicely done, Susan!
I have more pictures for the next post, too.
On the stash busting front, I did pull a piece of fabric out of my stash to use as the focus fabric for a quilt for class in the fall. Unfortunately I had to buy two pieces to go with it. I did get all of the blocks made, but not put together yet. I'll have to count it all out when it's done, which will be soon -- maybe next week???
