Sadly, this was my last set of classes at Somerset Patchwork. After a 16 year association with the shop, it’s time for me to move on. I’ve so enjoyed teaching these students, watching them grow in confidence and with their skills. It’s been such fun. So this is my last post from these students.

    I love catching up with the projects from your classes, so I’m sad there won’t be any more of them from this group. All lovely work, but Josephine’s rosettes are just stunning 😍

    I have been watching the progress on Sue 1’s quilt and loving it. Is it a pattern? or has it evolved as it has gone along?
