Class show and tell

The final class at Sewn and Quilted for 2018 was last week and, boy, did we have a Final Class Feast!  Hope you’re hungry!


Everyone brought along a plate of something to share and in the sewing stakes, Marilyn’s quilt was back from quiltingwith its fabulous backingand in class she stitched more “Sweet Sunday” blocksSue W had bought some Kaffe fabrics a little while ago, and together we decided on a pattern from one of Kaffe’s books and the plain fabric to go with themWhich she then spent the rest of class cuttingJo wants to spend the Summer break working on her quilt, so we traced out a few of the setting pieces so she knows what she’s up toLeanne worked on the last couple of her “Sweet Sunday” blocksSue E worked on her “Matilda” BOM (by Treehouse Textiles)Carole had one pot of flowers finishedand worked on another in classand Denise has all her cutting out done now, so she can spend her Summer break stitching.


More food arrived with the afternoon girls!Three students stayed all day; Lyn worked doubly hard and had double table runners to show for her effortsLinda quilted all day, giving depth to her birds and Sue S worked on her “Sugar Plum” blocksWith the other afternoon students, Fernanda had made this cushion cover at home (we looked at putting on of Sue S’s circles in the centre!)and she cut out a second in classTineke finished attaching the last of her hexagons with embroideryCheryl made another scene, including some lace, for her “Pele Meleand Janeand Helenboth added to their piles of “Sweet Sunday” blocks.

That’s it for Class Show and Tell posts for 2018.  But we’ll be back – I’m very happy to say – in 2019 when my students will share more of their work with you.

    It would be very hard to stay focused with all those yummies there!! The stitcheries are ALL GORGEOUS!!!! The hexies with vintage really caught my eye but there are so many inspiring projects! Enjoy your break with a Blessed Christmas and Peace-filled New Year……with hugs……

    Oh my goodness, such beautiful blocks and quilts! I love Marilyn’s double wedding ring with the gray border. I have to confess, when I saw the work in progress I couldn’t really “see” it, and didn’t especially care for it. But what a neat quilt! Reinforced for me that others may not like your work in progress, but they can’t see the plan in your head.
    I love all the others shown too, and can’t wait to see the finished quilts. Tineke’s work of embroidery stitching her blocks to applique them to the background is stunning! Would love the try this sometime.
    All of you are such inspiration to me. I check this blog daily to see what’s new. Merry Christmas from Tremont, IL, USA as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, and looking forward to seeing many more great quilts in the year ahead.

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
