Class Show and Tell

Despite the miserable weather….

20140807-140309.jpgwe had a great turn out for class…….and……

What a super fun class we had! There’s a sale on at the shop and once one person decided it would be a good idea to buy……backing……borders……binding……everyone jumped on board!!

There was some sewing done too, so let’s have a look……

Sue 1 has the centre of her quilt finished

20140807-140525.jpgso together we cut borders

20140807-140624.jpgand planned out fabrics for the next lot of hexagons

20140807-140720.jpgMarilyn has been trying out circular machine quilting

20140807-140840.jpgand she’s done a great job!

20140807-140917.jpgLisa came to class with this star

20140807-141006.jpgand by the end of class had this one finished too

20140807-141051.jpgand she still had time for a little shopping!,

20140807-141140.jpgJosephine chose backing (the floral) and binding for her Mrs B

20140807-141243.jpgJane has one corner ready to appliqué down

20140807-141329.jpgNanette chose background (the red), sashing and cornerstones for her quilt

20140807-141453.jpgChris chose purple backing for her Mrs B (and a couple of other bits!!)

20140807-141540.jpgCarilyn also chose backing (red bottom left), border and binding

20140807-141711.jpgand Sue 2 did a little shopping for her next(?) quilt

20140807-141804.jpgand me? I walked away! Aren’t you proud of me??!!

It’s still drizzly outside

  4. You didn’t buy any fabric!!!! ……. I shall have to book you in for therapy to get back your fabric-buying mojo!!
    As ever, lots of super sewing – I love Lisa’s stars – I am looking forward to seeing them all put together.
    I have been working on my Mrs B – I just keep forgetting to take photos!
    Love the rainy tree pictures!!

    Such lovely work but you are such a tease just showing little bits of the various projects! I love hexagons so the quilts being made by Sue 1 and Josephine really caught my eye!

    Haha — I had to laugh at Irene’s comment! How fun to have class where you can also buy. I’m a little worried about you though. Good thing Anne’s coming to whip you into shape!

    Wow (again)!!!! You gals are so amazing and no fabric for you!!??!! There’s always next time, hmmmmmm?

    It may have been drizzly outside but the colors and patterns we’re bright inside. I really liked the background Sue 1 chose for her hexie centers. It blends so softly. Lisa’s stars are just bright and cheerful. I love seeing the fabrics she’s putting together. I’m afraid I wouldn’t have been so self- controlled as you. Everyone bought some beautiful pieces.

  11. Miserable weather just drives you inside to quilt! Love the hexies.

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
