This was our last week of class for 2014 – very hard to believe!
Lois brought in her 1930’s quilt……I don’t know what happened but as I loaded the photos, the three I took of the front slowly disappeared from the screen!! So annoying! I do have one of the back, however.
Adrienne is progressing with her elongated pyramids
Deirdre trimmed her strips, laid them out “in a pleasing manner”, then stacked them up ready to sew.
Ann Marie continued with her embroidery
and Sandra was working on a Christmas themed project too
We finished the morning with delicious food and Christmas chatter
Sue 1 has another of her blocks made
Carylin has more blocks stitched together
Lorraine is starting a new hexagon project
Sue 2 has a woolly bits block finished – love the beads!
Josephine has made all her hexagon pieces
so we cut the background to size and starting pinning them into place ready to appliqué
We had some exciting finishes in this class…….
Nanette stitched the final seams on her quilt top
made up the backing and left it with Karen for quilting.
And Karen had some quilted quilts for the girls; this is Marilyn’s elegant quilt
The plain area for quilting works so well with this great feather pattern
and Karen was particularly chuffed with how the backing came together – can you see the seam??
Then we had Josephine’s Mrs Billings
and Sue 1’s Mrs Billings too
We kept the quilted quilts out so we could all have a good look at them (until some customers wanted to look at some fabrics!!)
Aren’t they all wonderful!
Again we finished the morning with fabulous food
I’m so proud of all that my students have achieved this year. I think they’ve done marvellously, and we’re all looking forward to more fun in classes in 2015 (now that just sounds wrong!!).
