Talented beginners

Chris has been teaching in Eccleshall again this week and amazingly remembered to take a camera – just forgot to take photos whenever the opportunity arose.  The ‘Technique of the Month’ on Thursday was Cathedral Window and we looked at various methods of making this lovely design by hand and by machine.  Ruth came to Saturday’s ‘Block of the Month’ with her Cathedral Window strip finished. Isn’t it great?!

Caroline has never sewn before and she turned up to only her third lesson with a completed quilt top –

This lovely quilt is to have a border added and will be for her son – some of the fabrics are from her husband’s shirts. (Wonder if he’s noticed yet? – Barbara).  Chris also managed a quick snap of Caroline’s two completed blocks before they were whisked away, but wasn’t quick enough to get any others.

So it’s back to HQ and our own sewing spaces for a few days – we need to get everything together for next Saturday’s class at Tittnesor – Four into Sixteen – which is sold out.  Barbara is also getting ready for several weeks on the road teaching and demonstrating at various shows – such a hard life!

  1. I think that Cathedral Window is probably my favourite block and I love the colours in the photo. You have some very talented beginners. Better get the supplies list downloaded, especially if this week goes by as quickly as last.
