Miniature Quilt classes

I had such a fun day today! Both of my children have recovered well enough to go to school, and I taught two miniature quilting classes. All week I was so worried about getting their illness and missing my classes,but I still feel fine...yippee! I'm sure the students were tired of hearing me say how happy I was to be away from the sickhouse! Here are the miniature quilts that the morning students worked on last month. We used a pattern from Wendy Vosters (with her permission) and just look at all the different ways to set these blocks...some quilters separated the blocks with sashing, and some added a couple of borders. Some snowmen are still waiting for their eyes and mouths! They did a great job and here they are proudly showing you their work! Thanks again Wendy for generously letting us use your design! Watch your mailbox for a treat from me!Here are the afternoon paper piecers with their Valentine heart quilts from last month...using either 3" or 1 1/2" blocks (or both) and different layouts. In today's class they were building houses for their own little neighbourhood, and mastering the skill of pieced joins.
Did I already tell you what a great day it was!?!?

  3. Nice little project! One thing I've come to realize after my completion of a Carol Doak UFO, I have no patiences for paper piecing and therefore will not attempt miniatures. I'm so glad that others enjoy it so that I can admire their work. Thanks for sharing!
