Last Saturday was my Designer Star class at Linderellas! For me, walking into Linderellas feels like coming home; it’s bright & cheerful and Linda & Carl are the best! We had a blast! We half square triangled (Is that a verb? It is now!) like nobodies business.
A few of the students are newer to quilting, but everyone did great!
First up is Connie! She considered doing a 10″ version, but we talked her off the ledge. The 10″ version is gorgeous, but requires very precise cutting and piecing; a great project to spread out over a few days! I was so excited to finally meet Connie. She had won a giveaway and she’d been registered for the class I had to cancel for my trip to Nebraska. We’ve chatted via email, but hadn’t met. And she is delightful! And made a beautiful Designer Star!
And Shirley!! She’s made two quilts on her own and this was her first class! She sews a PERFECT straight stitch which is not all that common among new quilters:) Getting a nice 1/4″ seam is the first step to quilting. She did an amazing job! She’s great fun and I’m looking forward to seeing her in another class.
Here’s Tabitha’s! She’s also new to quilting, but is an accomplished garment sewer. She was also full of entertaining stories, which we love! She did an excellent job. I think she’s a fan because she left the shop with materials for another quilt! New quilter alert!!
And Michelle! She somehow alluded being in my picture. Michelle has taken quite a few of my classes and I love having her! She used Kate Spain’s new line Sunnyside; I NEED a Sunnyside Designer Star! The layout…
And she’s already done!! Amazing!!
Tuesday night was class two of the evening City Sampler at The Little General! I couldn’t wait to see everyone’s blocks! And I definitely was not disappointed! This is Sarah (British Sarah as I call her since I have a few friends named Sarah:). She’s questioning the colors of the blocks that we put down at the bottom. I’ve suggested she wait to see if she needs to remake them. No need to start that now when they might end up fitting in with the whole quilt.
And Joan!! She’s an overachiever and has made lots of blocks! She’s doing a rainbow version and has lots of cool fussy cuts in there!!
And The Guru! That’s right, The Guru is in the house for City Sampler:) She is using Denyse Schmidt’s new line Florence and mixing in solids and a few complementary prints! I’m loving what she has so far!
And mine! I’m making one along with the group! It started out to be mod red, white and blue. But I added lime and grey:) It is completely different than my Tula version which makes me happy!
Last night was the makeup class for my voile string class at Studio Stitch! Cathy couldn’t make it, but Mary and Justiann had fun! Mary is going to lay hers out in chevrons. Stunning!
And Justi us doing lattice. She is using a lot of those V&A voiles. I love them! Plus she selected a plum background to set them off. Amazing!
I really enjoy teaching and getting to meet so many amazing people! And I already cannot wait to see next week’s City Sampler class!
