Thistle Thicket Month 1: Erector Sets

IMG_5937Here are the blocks from our first Thistle Thicket applique class.  Linda F’s center.  She’s using Alison Glass Ex Libris.  Love the diagonal center.

IMG_5940Cydney’s center.  She’s nicknamed hers “Head on a Stick.”  Stay tuned.  🙂

Ha!  Bev likes a challenge.  We can’t wait to see what you do!

IMG_5941Fowler’s!  Do you not love those striped stems?

IMG_5939Linda S’s center.  She set her patchwork on the diagonal.  Excellent workmanship and I love the rich purples.

IMG_5938Ginny’s beautiful Liberty fabrics.  I was able to sit with her at an Open Sew this week and watched her add this.

Ha!  Too much fun!  Tula meets Liberty.  Ka-boom!  Beautiful!

These six women put a lot of thought into their fabric selections.  They are all excellent hand appliquers.  The class is going to be a lot of fun and I am a very fortunate teacher.
