From Stars to Crosses (& Everything in Between!)

I’ve been teaching all over lately! I started at Studio Stitch for a sewing machine cover class. We used the Empty Bobbin Cover Up pattern.

Nancy used these pretty florals! Her sewing machine is in the family room so she wanted something that she’d like in there.

Gail used bright and fun fabrics! She had gotten these fabrics at a quilt show and was saving them for a special project; this was perfect!

Jane used Sweet Serenade for hers! It’s very pretty. I love that the chevron fabric makes that section look pieced.

Debbie used lots of Bonnie & Camille. Her accent stripe is horizontal…we are going to use the phrase “happy accident”. And I love that she ruffled the bottom!!

The Guru also took that class, but she’s still finishing. Her machine was in the shop for its annual physical, so she’s waiting to make the bottom border perfect. Will post a pic soon!

Then I headed down to Linderellas for the scrappy star class. We are using Sarah Fielke’s Stars in Your Eyes pattern from Quilting from Little Things.

You end up with lots of fun shaped scraps and Marge made baby stars. Love!

Michelle is using Simply Color and she mixed in lots of solids!! I love how the ombré looks on this.

Jessica is doing a patriotic version. She even mixed in some homespun. It is so pretty!

Julie embraced Kaffe and her love of color. I love how bright and fun it is.

Marge, Julie’s Mom, also used Kaffe. The background makes them look totally different. She had initially chosen a light celery color, but this dark blue is awesome!! It makes the stars pop!

Marge has completed her top! Check out the cool borders she made with her scraps!! Love! Love!! Love!!!

Lynn also finished her top! She used Scrumptious and it’s amazing!!

Then I headed back to Studio Stitch for granny blocks! This was the class that I wasn’t sure if it would happen; we rescheduled twice because of crappy weather. I had a very special guest in this class… Sweet Vic! I met her at Sew South last year and her daughter is one of my best sewing buddies. She’s been trying to take one of my classes and it finally worked! She did a great job and got her strips sewn before she had to leave.

Marquita finished her pretty grey and pink block! It’s gorgeous!!

Kelsie also finished hers. She’s using really pretty autumn colored batiks.

And Susan! She is using Sphere from Zen Chic. This is such a great line and I love the hint of yellow.

Then I headed to Sew Original for another Scrappy Star class. Gail is almost done with hers. I love that she did non-scrappy stars. It’s gorgeous!!

20140330-233749.jpg

Shirley is also using Sphere by Zen Chic. She’s making a queen and has finished half her background and all her stars! Quite the labor of love!!

20140330-233801.jpg

Denise made hers out of Denyse Schmidt. The background is little dark green dots. It’s gorgeous. I’m considering stealing it!!

Next up was the Modern Cross class, also at Sew Original! Gail, Shirley & Denise were repeat offenders and were joined by Trish, Cynthia & The Guru. There were some grumblings about the photos, so we did a group shot!! These quilts are going to be AMAZING! We are using Modern Log Cabin Quilting by Susan Beal.

I enjoy teaching so much and I’m so proud of what everyone makes.
