From Taffys to Stars

I’ve been teaching lots this past week! Last Saturday was the Taffy Quilt class at Sewingly Yours. Taffy is a great pattern by Jaybird Quilts.

Color and value choices are really important for this quilt and everyone did a great job! Annette is using bright Amy Butler prints. I love her fussy cut centers!!

And The Guru! She is making this quilt for me!! Lucky me!!! I helped her shop in my stash for this one. Mom made the center square. Everyone else made the upper left square.

And finally the Color Theory class at Studio Stitch! These was a really fun group!! We had a blast!!! We are using a free paper pieced pattern from Six White Horses.

Kathy is using batiks for the centers with solids around the edges. It’s going to be pretty!

Susan is using all solids! She did a great job with arranging her colors.

Kristine is also doing all solids. She arranged them and rearranged them. They’re perfect!!

  1. we missed you at modern quilt therapy but I can see you are having loads of fun with your classes. Great to see all the different fabrics each person uses.

  2. Those star blocks are so pretty, I have Sarah’s book but my word is the pattern intimidating! I bet the Denyse Schmidt quilt will blow everyones socks off when it’s finished the fabrics look made for this block :D

  3. Do you have a pattern source for your “private pillow” class with Shannon & Jo? That would be a perfect project for my students.
