class stuff

a couple of pics to share from my last couple of classes taught...
I taught a piecing class from Lori Smiths'
"Fit to Frame series: pattern Twelve
 I taught the top right quilt in the picture,
Abe's Logs. 
It is a great piece (for teaching and for practice),
as you really have to pay attention to your seams to keep your little finish squared up. 
Lori's Fit to Frame patterns fit ready-bought frames, so this piece finished 11"x14".
Anyway, I quilted it using the Utility Quilt stitch,
that big, hunking, running stitch that I love.
I finished the Abe's Logs piece before the class started
so I had a class sample to hang in the shop.

So for the class itself, I had another piece finished up
so I could teach layering, basting and the Utility Stitch stitch;
this is what I had chosen:
It's just one block from the pattern Autumn Pennies
(Kim's picture from her class schedule)
in the Kim Diehl book:
Simple Seasons.
I still have to bind this fifteen inch square,
but it will make a great table topper, don't you think?

  1. I have that same quilt to finish. Get it in Marion? Thanks for sending me the last chance for Eleanor. Too bad I am already booked.
