Piecing progress

Lots of lovely homework arrived in class yesterday – everyone had had fun (and success) with their  strips of quarter square triangles. 

Between the two of us we demonstrated Flying Geese, single units and in multiples, plus Migrating Geese for good measure.   Guess what homework has been set for next week’s class!  Everyone admired Chris’s JellyWeave quilt on the front cover of this month’s Patchwork & Quilting magazine, and we also had a sneak preview of  her latest large quilt top, which she assured us had only taken a week to put together from scratch.   There were a few anguished howls of disbelief … 

Barbara had managed to join her sample blocks from last year’s class into sashed strips and we all stood round and gazed at these for a while – they will show up again as class samples for the quilting-in-sections, quilt-as-you-go evening later next month. 

As for today’s tasks – Chris is grovelling around on the floor putting backing and batting together for another large quilt and Barbara is trying to conjure borders out of not-quite-enough fabric – it’s a glamorous life sometimes!
