Flower Power workshop

These were the samples to inspire the class to make their flowers. Apologies for members picture quality as I apparently had the wrong setting. Sorry girls.
Marys piece turned into a shadow applique piece by adding a rainbow sheer

Jan almost completed her piece and obviously fond of tacking

Bev decided her piece was going to be used this christmas and really loved using the 505 instead of tacking

Betty made this lovely piece and might add a few more into a small quilt and pleased to have learnt machine applique

Viv made this piece and experimented with the embroider stiches on her machine

Here are the pictures of the Flower Power Workshop in progress

More class items

Vivienne's humbug from the Stripes like Bridget workshop last month.

Gill has made 3 cushions and this is the back of one of them. The lovely material is from Lonni Rossi.
Gill's quilt is lower in this blog but there was so much leftover so 3 cushions have been made. Here is the latest cushion.
Teresa has just finished this cot quilt and another one to be finished by Christmas. Watch this space.

Andrea comes to Wednesday afternoon classes and this is one of her many zipped purses.

December classwork

Jenny from Monday evening class has returned to patchwork inspired by Beccas quilt displayed at Upton House exhibition Summer 2008. This bed quilt is nearly there.
Peggy came to the shaded 4 patch workshop and this is her sample. Peggy worked hard despite a dislocated arm. Fortunately her arm relocated its correct place the next day. Watch this space because Peggy now intends to make a larger quilt based on these ideas.

Rosemary loves a challenge and this one surely was. With determination this wonderful cushion was completed and no one can dare use it.

Elizabeth joined the Tuesday Afternoon class recently and this is her first mastepiece. A pram quilt for her grandchild
