Class action

There are always lots of different projects bubbling along in my regular classes. Here's a taste of what clever girls get up to...
 Frances is new to patchwork but has jumped in at the deep end with Lots of Dots.
I think she's enjoying it and is certainly doing a fab job using lots of Kaffe fabrics.
Last class at Hobbysew Top Ryde she stared with this...
and added a bit of this..

to finish up with this by the end of the day. It was fun to see how each block would turn out - all different but stunning. A limited palette makes the design shine.

Karen is making this NYB even bigger with more blocks then a final border. Beautiful fabric choices with the blue an added highlight.

While Dennise's version of the same quilt is not quite so calm - look at me! look at me!
This really has the wow factor - can't wait to see her next border.

Lots of Jacobean Stars seem to be coming together lately. Each one different but beautiful.
This is Kathy's...

while this is Susan's - love the blue here.

Susie is ready to applique the diamonds and maybe start a new project.

Robbie has done a fine job with her Birds in Paradise using only batiks. They will certainly be a great showcase for lots of fancy quilting.

And Nerida is back to the real world after two back to back cruises - looking good.
I'm getting ready to bind the new Hobbysew BOM quilt Red Dust. I'll have a pic then.


  1. It's wonderful to see all these amazing stars and NYBs. Lucky Nerida going on 2 cruises. In fact you'd be a great teacher for one of those quilting cruises.

  2. Chris this is a great post of some great work from your students. Frances has hit the ground running.

  3. What beautiful work! Frances has obviously found her thing! The Jacobean Star is such a lovely pattern. They all look so different and the NYB's, Wow!

  4. It's amazing to me to see the intricacy of the blocks and quilts your students make. I know the designs are yours, and the detail in them is stunning! I sure don't see much of that type of piecing here... or maybe I'm just out of the loop since I'm so into modern quilting. Your designs are beautiful, Chris!
