Class show and tell

There were lots of finishes on a very busy class day.   Wanna see?


Marilyn had her quilt top for her grand daughter finished (its from the Quiltmania “Simply Modern” magazine Issue 12)and she started working on “Sweet SundayJo finished her “Square Dance” top (pattern by everyday quilts)and worked on more starsLeanne is a bit besotted with “Sweet Sunday” and has a heap of blocks already, but we had a lesson on how to use doilies in the blocksSue E cut the sashing and cornerstones for an old(er) quiltDenise was cutting too, diamonds for her quiltCarole and I chose fabrics for her moths and she prepped and started stitching themand Sue W cut a wall hanging panel to size and started hand quilting


Tineke brought in her finished wall hangingshe’s done a great job with the hand quilting, and I love the backing and binding for itand she started working on a new quilt, cutting triangles to make hexagons of various sizes (there’s just not quite enough fabric in the kit to get them all the same in the biggest size – but we’ll work something out) Fernanda has finished her “Ruby Maywith a gorgeous crocheted edge and, as it’s a throw, just simple hand quilting around the flowersand she started embroidering an old cloth that came complete with threadsSue M has the main part of her “Rowdy Flats Library Quilt” finished– such a happy quilt, it reminds me of Summer – and together we cut and marked up the borders

Cathie joined us and we worked out a rail fence quilt pattern for her to make Jane finished a corner blockHelen cut and added the borders for her table runnerLinda happily stitched down and embellished more circle flowersCheryl worked on more “Pele Mele” clam shells (no, it’s not a Halloween one, they’re actually rabbits, just cut roughly before appliqueing!)and Frances cut out squares for a simple quilt for a nephew, but she packed it away before I had a chance to snap a pic, however, you can see it will be a very masculine quilt (the Liberty flowers aren’t in it!)Meredithe x

    Just to let you know that you don’t need to bring the 60 degree ruler on Thursday. I managed to find one at Spotlight and have cut all my pieces ready for you to show me how to put it together!
