    I always enjoy seeing the lovely projects your students work on. I’m wondering where you teach? From home or at a shop?

    Stars abound!!!!! My jar always hits the floor(!) with the amazing intricacies of the gals’ piecings!!! The appeal of the ‘star’ pattern is definitely world-wide and the variations are limitless!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing all with us and Kudos!!!!!!!

    Stars are everywhere and I love that ! May I give my opinion for the border of Chris’s quilt ? I will choose the fourth solution ! But maybe I’m late….
    Have a nice day M and thank you for sharing !!

  5. Janet says:

    What great projects – I’m feeling very inspired! So interesting to see the 4 border options -which one did she choose??

  6. Judy says:

    Just amazing, it’s obvious that you are all an inspiration for each other. So much accomplished. My eye this post was especially on Carilyn’s project. And my question is this: When layering the circles for applique as with Lorraine and Sue 1, do you have full circles underneath the smaller ones or are they rings? Thanks, Meredith, for the great posts that you do. Judy

  8. The girls have been stitching up a storm, haven’t they!

  9. Pat Mosley says:

    There is an old saying “idle hands are the Devil’s workshop”. I don’t think he has a chance with your ladies, they are very busy! And again, I love seeing all the different fabric choices the sewers make. So much variety. Very inspiring. Blessings from Texas
