Carmen's quilt. She turned a mistake into part of her backing. Very clever and resourceful!
Several of the quilters in the class really enjoy appliqué. One lady made both of these. Just for the record, she had Yankee Doodle completed at the second class.
Of course, I bought more fabric, mostly shirtings. Two of my favorite quilting tips are color sheets and foam core. Am I the last quilter to learn about color sheets? They are used in the wash cycle to absorb color. I will definitely be using color sheets the first time I wash the red and white Christmas stars quilt. The foam core covered with batting is a great way to lay out the blocks of the quilt, it assists with design and placement of blocks. Miss Callie Mae is loving all the quilt activity--she has a discerning eye for fabrics!
Let the cutting, sewing and pressing begin!
