Class show and tell


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

20141212-135154.jpgDeirdre trimmed her strips, laid them out “in a pleasing manner”, then stacked them up ready to sew.

20141212-135303.jpgAnn Marie continued with her embroidery

20141212-135410.jpgand Sandra was working on a Christmas themed project too

20141212-135537.jpgWe finished the morning with delicious food and Christmas chatter




Sue 1 has another of her blocks made

20141212-135844.jpgCarylin has more blocks stitched together

20141212-135937.jpgLorraine is starting a new hexagon project

20141212-140021.jpgSue 2 has a woolly bits block finished – love the beads!

20141212-140102.jpgJosephine has made all her hexagon pieces

20141212-140218.jpgso we cut the background to size and starting pinning them into place ready to appliqué

20141212-140306.jpgWe had some exciting finishes in this class…….

Nanette stitched the final seams on her quilt top

20141212-140433.jpgmade 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

20141212-140652.jpgThe plain area for quilting works so well with this great feather pattern

20141212-140744.jpgand Karen was particularly chuffed with how the backing came together – can you see the seam??

20141212-140829.jpgThen we had Josephine’s Mrs Billings


20141212-140933.jpgand Sue 1’s Mrs Billings too


20141212-141034.jpgWe kept the quilted quilts out so we could all have a good look at them (until some customers wanted to look at some fabrics!!)

20141212-141126.jpgAren’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!!).

    Thanks for the beautiful stitching project photos. The food tables are displayed just as beautifully too. Have you ever thought of a cookbook or maybe some recipes so we can create them too?
