Handpiecing, curved seam strategies and a goodly dash of basic machine quilting were all on the menu for this week’s class. The Tangled Star block from last week had worked very well and the homework looked great –
Barbara didn’t manage to take pictures of all the homework because she got sidetracked into a discussion on handpiecing in general and some of the historical background. This is a reference picture of the quilt we were talking about – the Rajah quilt
taken from this book
We did do a little hand piecing in class
and we also managed to take a shot of a quilt in the making – well, it’s got as far as choosing the main fabrics and pattern –
There are two blocks for homework this week – Scrap Violet and Summer & Winter.
Onwards from here! Chris has 2 more classes to teach this week and is also busy with cupboard construction while Barbara is sorting and tidying and doing necessary admin. before her trip to Houston.
