Class coffee morning!

Last week we had a coffee morning for all the students, past and present, from my Wednesday morning class. It was great fun! Lots of work was brought in for a show and tell and everyone was most enthusiastic! Pictures are worth a thousand words so here goes!

This lap quilt was made by Yvonne. The fabrics were all dyed by Farne Designs. This was the last project of last term where we used the Drunkards Path block to make a quilt.

This was made by Heather. We made a kaleidoscope quilt a year or so ago in class and this was her piece. Very striking!

An unfinished applique wall hanging by Ellen. A really fun piece. 

Jane's beautiful and large applique quilt. A work of art! 
Below are four pouch bags made by Barbara from kits she purchased from Farne Designs. She made one and so enjoyed doing it that she decided to do more and give them as Christmas presents. She has done an amazing job and the recipients will be thrilled I'm sure!

This is several of the group including me, holding up Jane's quilt. It was twice this size as it was folded!

Tina's quilt for her grandson. A really lovely piece.

Barbara and I showing off the backs of our crazy patchwork waistcoats!

Some of Ellen's beautiful Baltimore Album quilt. This was a project a while back and Ellen is still putting hers together. The blocks are all done and the quilting.

We hold our classes in the local rugby club and this is a view of the room complete with pool table which is such a good height for cutting out on. It is a lovely class and I can't wait to get going again in September. This coming term we are going to do a quilt as you go double bed sampler quilt with lots of learning curves!
