The quilting classes have come to an end for this season. We always have a break during summer. Our quilt teacher tends to have long holidays. Usually she goes bicycling in far away places. This time she is going to Thailand and Malaysia.
Last Wednesday and Thursday I had my last 2 classes and I want to share the photos of the projects that the quiltmakers are busy with. I hope you like.
Wednesday class (Creatief naaien)
Me working on my Dear Jane
You can admire this quilt coming Saturday, 1st of June at the Quilt Market in Putten. It is a replica of one of Leanne’s House patterns.
This one is nearly done. Look a those tiny pieces in the centre.
Thursday class (Fiets-groep)
Matty is on a roll! The next 4 photos are her works!
This is a new project that Matty is working on.
Here is ‘me’ showing my progress. Someone noticed that I used a different pattern for one of the diamond blocks. Here I’m explaining why.
I’m really getting the hang of appliquéing! I think I like this technique. Oops, did I say that . Some of my fellow quilters have complemented me on my work and precision. I’m blushing .
Look at all the attentive faces in the picture underneath. Aagje, our teacher, laying out all the blocks on the border fabric.
This is going to be an other beauty!
Underneath the project Jannie is working on. This will be a quilted wall hanging for her grandchild. Aren’t the snails cute?
The mice are cute too
Another quilt nearly done! Marja seems to be on a roll too. A couple of weeks ago she started on this project and now she has already sandwiched it and started quilting.
The backside of the quilt above. Look at these nice precise stitches.
Yvonne, keeps on going. These compasses are part of a huge quilt. If I remember correctly, the quilt is going to be 250 x 250 cm (98.4 x 98.4 inches) when finished.
Look at this beauty! When I look at this quilt I think I want to make another attempt at making the Medallion Sampler.
Mirjam showing the other quiltmakers what she has learned.
Thumb quilting! I think I need to try this again. But, where is my thumb thimble.
Everyone working hard!
Nearly completed this little block. Started appliquéing the second diamond. I used the Broderie Perse technique I learned in Di Fords workshop . Broderie perse (French for "Persian embroidery") is a style of appliqué embroidery which uses printed elements to create a different image.
