Going Crazy in Patches!
This morning I taught another class of my Crazy Patch class. This week they are learning how to sew on their borders. They were busy working away cutting up their border fabrics and getting them ready for sewing.
Susan here is cutting up her inner and outer borders. She is going to have a beautiful quilt when it is completed. I managed to get a little piece of her quilt blocks with the sashings on them before she started sewing her borders on. I love how she used the white fabric for her sashings. It really brought out the vibrant colours in her blocks and the beautiful satin stitching she did around each fabric piece.
Some of my girls were still working along on machine embroidering all the pieces in each block as you can see here with Joanne, who has her head down in deep concentration while she works on her purple quilt. She is using a gorgeous deep shade of purple metallic for all her satin stitching.
Here Glenda I believe has her embroidery work done, but cleaning up extra threads. Her next step is cutting up her sashings and sashing squares and sewing them together into her quilt top.
Marshas has her quilt top completed and decided to start basting her quilt together. She did a great job!
I hope to take some photos of my Monday night class this week. They too are making some amazing quilts!!!
Tomorrow I plan to take the day and sew a few more crumb blocks for my quilt. I will remember to take photos of them tomorrow and post them later the week. Stay tuned!!
