March April students items

Joyce made this cushion with her leftovers from the seat cushion.

Betty has finished her quilt started during the braid workshop. It wotks well with a light background as well as the usual dark ones which can be seen below.

Gill left us this year but on a visit I managed to take this quilt which had been quilted by Quiltessence. It is a simple block but looks super.

Joyce made this cushion cover for seat for a relative. There are embroidery details which can not be seen on here.

Barbara has made this quilt for her daughter. Sue of Quiltessence did the quilting for her.

Carol has made this small wall hanging. Apparently Sun Bonnet sue is going to have more added.

Margaret must have worked all hours to get this huge quilt done. She has hand quilted it too. It was another result from the Prarie workshop.

Jenny has made this quilt to put on the end of her bed. It is a shame the quilting is not visible because she hand quilted this with her own design.

Linda has joined in with many of my students by making her bag to use to bring her patchwork to classes. So many of the students have made versions of this bag which I designed 3 years ago as an example of various blocks as a first introduction to patchwork. The other side is displayed below.

This is the back of Margarets quilt. look at the front and see how she has constructed it. Food for thought if you want to do free machining on your quilt.

Margaret has made this crazy quilt by making each block and machine quilting each one then constructed all the blocks with the black sashing. Margaret then had the task of adding the sandwiched borders and as you can see the corners were mitred.

Rory gas completed her braid piece started during a workshop and she has machine quilted hers.

Jenny has totally hand made and quilted this cushion and amazing for her first piece.

Margaret has made this runner for her piano. A picture in place would be good.

Susanne's made a quillow and this is the back. The front follows. Quillows are clever as the quilt can be folded into the cushion panel on the back.

Susanne has made this Quillow with lovely animal characters in each block.

Leza has made this attic windows cot quilt. The challenge is to count the ducks!!

Sandra has spent hours making this pretty cot quilt. All the blocks are quilted in a different style so there was a lot of learning for Sandra.

Sample of Vivienne's faux Chenille.

Joyce has made this wonderful Cathedral window cushion

Rory has finished the braids quilt that started during the braids workshop. Rory hand quilted this piece.
