When good things come to an end, or at least a temporary halt, its a very mixed feeling – lots of happy memories, lots of achievement but no more evening classes now until September. We’re getting withdrawal symptoms already! Not too much time to sit around though – next week we’re off to Uttoxeter to deliver quilts and set up our demo. space for Quilts in the Garden and we’ll be travelling back and forth each day until the end of the show on Sunday.
So in just eight weeks what have our intrepid students done? Each week they have had four blocks to choose from, how-to sheets for each block, supporting demos from one or both of us and lots of discussion and friendships (are you going to mention the chocolate biscuits? -Chris). Because we have good floor space at The Station we spent quite a lot of time grovelling around on our knees looking at layouts for blocks – starting with Chris’s blocks here’s a selection of “student work” –
And this is probably our favourite shot from the whole eight weeks – Jane demonstrates how she will fly or float her way through putting her blocks together –
Well done ladies – you all deserve a gold star, and we’ll see you in class in September. Thanks also to Elizabeth for taking the pictures we’ve used in this post. Barbara’s off to London to the V&A quilt exhibit and Chris is unpacking her class stuff and repacking for Uttoxeter, with a family Easter gathering in between. Happy Easter to all!
