Classes, Classes & More Classes

I’ve had lots of fun classes lately! My first class at Papanana in King was the Designer Star. We had a blast at the first session; the guru was a guest assistant! And Jill brought her daughter:)

Janie was an expert at marking her HST’s.

She loved making it so much that she started another one! I love those Riley Blake prints!!

Melanie’s is beautiful!! Melanie owns Papanana and she’s amazing! If you’re local, it’s worth the trip:) She has a heart of gold and is just an all around wonderful person!

And Kim’s!! Her designer star is holiday fabric! I’m a little jealous; I really want a holiday quilt!! And her intersections all align perfectly:) Lock those stitches!

The next night, I taught an Introduction to Paper Piecing. We used this pattern from Six White Horses. Kim got the hang of it pretty quickly! Love the add-a-quarter ruler:)

Week two of color theory is learning to paper piece! Lots of color discussion. This is Sue’s and it’s gorgeous…pure prints with coordinating solids!

A fun lunch break at The Lunch Box!

And the Modern Crosses class started! Wendy’s blocks are bright and cheerful. She did an awesome job; her piecing is getting pretty perfect:)

And Donna’s. She is mixing the new line Edges with some coordinating prints. I’m really loving Edges; it’s very happy!

And Sue’s Kaffe version. She’s using lots of different Kaffe prints with a dogwood background. I’m loving it!

The Linderella’s classroom is awesome! Tons of natural light. I always enjoy my days with Linda & Carl.

And a quick update on a very popular post…Elisabeth of Lee & Thee fame is back!! She’s gotten a sewing machine for her birthday! A perfect little starter Bernette in case you’re wondering. And she is sewing up a storm. She made a pouch on her own. I could not be more proud!!

She’s amazing! And just so adorable!!

  1. Everyone’s project look lovely! Glad you all had a good time. Quilting fellowship is one of my favorite activities.

  2. Good job Elizabeth!! I made myself a pencil case for 8th grade – now I’m 50 years old and I still have it and use it! Sewing is a skill you will love all of your life.
