Here’s what I saw during Wednesday evening’s Open Sew at Village Fabric Shop. This group of young women has so much talent! They all work full time and they come ready to sew!! I am so proud of them. (I’m going to take a picture of them next month.)
Steph is attaching the binding to her original design quilt. She designed and pieced it and then machine quilted it. She is self-taught.
Here’s the binding. I did show her how to miter a binding corner. 🙂 The shop is closed on Wednesday nights so Amy just lets us spread out and take over.
This is Laura’s beautiful quilt, binding attached. THIRD quilt. Extremely good workmanship; perfect points. It’s about 50″ square so it’s larger than it looks in this picture. She machine quilted this one by outlining the chevrons; exceptional. It’s going to her goddaughter.
Here’s Mindy’s block from a LQS block of the month; she needed a quick repair. It’s so pretty!Fowler! Fowler literally made me teach “Thistle Thicket” last year. Here’s her hand appliqued top.She picked out the Amy Butler fabric for her border and worked back. Notice the color placement on that pieced border. She’s on Theresa DeWalt’s list…She’s also working on the La Passacaglia quilt; she’s in my Saturday workshop at Trailer Stash.I made her prep and stitch stars. She changed her mind a couple of times.
Jennifer shared a table with her. She is making the quilt from the cover of Kim Diehl’s Simple Comforts. Jennifer machine appliqued a Serendipity Sampler with me and since she owned the book, why not? 🙂
This is the book cover.
It was fun to watch her begin to piece this and then completely change her mind about placement. Jennifer is like that.
It’s going to be pretty wonderful.
Mindy set up her nani iro Liberty baby quilt and finished piecing one of the 16-patch blocks. I love the light nani iro.
She also attached the binding to her beginner quilt…yes, I did teach her how to quilt last April. She’s had a productive year!
How’s that for some fabulous show and tell? I so look forward to this group! They are special. See you in May.
