The FRENCH BRAIDS workshop to be held 10th APRIL

The STARS and STRIPS Workshop

My sample for the workshop to give ideas.
A typical strip block.
A typical wonky star.
Most students managed at least 6 blocks on the day.

Susanne finished her workshop blocks in a week, the days blocks are shown below.
Jill made her workshop pieces with Amy butler material and was a little disappointed but I think it actuall looks very good.
Mary speeded her way through the blocks and actually managed to get these together in the 6 hour workshop. Since this was made a border has been adde and I await the quilting.
Susanne made these blocks and above is the finished item completed within a week from the workshop.
Betty has made this with her scraps and enjoyed the workshop but wished she had used brighter materials.

March entries from my students

Rae bought a pattern and made this unusual bag. it did not quite reflect the pattern but I still think it is delightful
Linda has just started classes and this is her very first piece of patchwork. the quilting stitches are very precise.

Joyce is addicted to making bags and this one is beautifully embroidered too.

Margaret otherwise known as Mags has made this colourful childs quilt. It was quite a challenge in organising the colours.

Trish has a list of projects as long as your arm and this was a cushion using fused bias binding. Well done Trish

Ineke has made this quilt and has been quilted by hand. This is Ineke's second item so well done.

Jean has made a double sided log cabin this is one side and the other to follow.

Jean's double sided log cabin. Each block made individually then joined with sashing.

Joe has just finished this delicate baby quilt and worked out very well.

Hilary is very proud of her first piece of patchwork and has learnt a lot of hand quilting too.

Rae came to a workshop last year for equilateral triangles and has made her sample into a cushion.

This is one of the cushions Susanne has made for her daughter as atest for the quilt she is producing at the moment. Keep an eye open in the future to see it.

Paula finished this table cover in January and well done to Paula.
