Here are some photos of my two dear friends Joan and Corrie who started off quilting classes in my little sewing room last year. This was actually their third class where they are learning Paper Piecing.
And here they are with their finished blocks. Aren't they beautiful, umm the blocks as well!
|A finish! Well done girls.|
I have enjoyed the quilting classes and we have had a lot of fun and laughter, and not too many ripped out seams!!
One of my free motion quilting classes was held at Lalis, a lovely guest house in Harrismith. We were so busy that this is the only photo I managed to take. It doesn't look like it, but we had a lot of fun in this class! I must have just captured the concentration! Poor Emmie was really battling with her old Bernina which led to her buying a brand new Elna. Way to go Emmie.

At about this time we had a visit from Issie Steenberg, a lovely lady from Bloemfontein who came to give us all a class on the "quilt as you go" method. Fortunately the girls had all had a bit of practice with free motion quilting as Issie's class was not a beginners class. Now six months later, two of the ladies have finished the quilts they started in the class. Here they are, aren't they stunning!

I have yet to finish mine but will post when it's done. Too much to do; too little time!
Thank you for stopping by,
