We had a fun morning yesterday making Star Quilts! And yes, all my students were stars too!
I had 6 ladies booked for the class, but three couldn’t make it, so we had a nice little group. Sometimes it is better when your class sizes are small, you can give your students a bit of extra attention.
Nora got some new wooden partitions a few weeks ago… and they are perfect for hanging samples…
We found a bit of black backing that made a good design wall… 🙂 I think we need to cover the whole thing with felt or something, I will discuss it with the boss!
Two of the ladies were new and I really enjoyed meeting them. One came from the Eastern side of Arabia, here visiting family. She only had her hand sewing with her, so I let her use Bella – so see, Bella has come in handy already!
All the ladies chose different colors… one was in a mood for Autumn colors and chose these pretty batiks:
Another went for a darker background fabric, and I love the effect it has:
On Thursday we’ll be adding borders, so I’ll give you an updated pic!
And I just love these fabrics… so much so that I might need to buy some myself…. (ha!):
Aren’t they all great?
One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is seeing the fabric choices people make. It always amazes me how the same pattern can look so good in so many different color choices!
Another thing I enjoy about teaching is making new friends… it was a lovely morning and I will miss being able to teach at Nora’s…
Remind me to tell you the story about pins and flying needles…. another day….
