I was asked to teach “Steampunk” at the quilt shop and we had a fun Saturday learning the how-to’s; how to choose fabrics, how to use templates, how to fussy cut, how to hand piece, how to curve piece, how to make circles. Here’s what the students achieved.

Anita has done previous classes with me so she steamed ahead and had her first block nearly finished, and the fabric pile is a result of the colour/fabric how-to session

this one from Sue who is hoping to make hers for a grandchild

Michelle is on the scary path

Lynne’s is going to be a pretty version

Mary’s hoping to use up lots of scraps – an ideal quilt for that notion

and Rosalie’s enjoying buying new fabrics for hers

all achieved with the help of this delicious orange cake which was much enjoyed by all!

    Meredithe! I LOVE these steampunk blocks, I will enjoy seeing what you do with them. Hand piecing is so lovely, I wish there were more hours in a day to do more of it!

  5. Some great starts, this has been on my ‘to do’ list for ages too! And yes, the cake looks yummy!

    I could have used your expertise when I did my steam punk blocks. These look great!
