The sampler classes started this week and it's a first for me. I'll be teaching the same project all year and setting homework!
In previous years the girls have worked on a stand alone project, which was often completed, or was very close too, in the 3 hour class. This year it will be a case of going home with completed blocks.
The blocks the girls made Wednesday night.
The blocks the Saturday girls made.
As much as I love red it's exciting to see the quilt will be made in other colour combinations. Some are opting for the same background fabric and others will be using a variety.
The homework is optional but highly recommended if the quilt is to be finished this year!
I've been designing quilts and other sewn items for decorating and use around the home, since 2003. I especially love making quick things and gifting them to family and friends. My favourite techniques include needle turn and felt appliqué, stitching, hand and machine piecing. I live on the Victorian/NSW border, Australia.
