Sue had opted for a solid colour backing but decided to cut out car shapes from her left over fabric and applique onto the back
This was a new technique for her and it worked very well. The quilt top is so bright and cheerful for a young boy. I love the car fabrics she chose.
Liz's fabrics were also bold and colourful with delightful designs on them. The fabrics had a mixture of pattern sizes with some big bold florals and also small geometric shapes.
The class was a delight to teach and we had some wonderful conversations on a wide range of topics. Liz and Sue didn't complete their quilts although they had both finished the tops. Both Liz and Sue achieved a great level of accuracy with the triangles and were looking forward to completing their quilts.
Today I ran a quilt taster session and the three ladies made cushion covers. The morning was great fun and all the ladies finished their project. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos. This afternoon I cut out pieces for the blocks of my latest project and tried to catch up with reading some blogs. I'm hoping to have more time this month for writing posts and for sewing. I'm also going to have another try at fitting in at least 15 minutes of sewing or knitting a day. It only lasted about two weeks last time but you never know, it may be different this time around.
Picasso has been helping me to sort out things. Whilst I sorted through a mountain of paperwork he decided he'd better check my machine cover as you never knew what might have invaded. He does so love to get into boxes and bags.
I'm enjoying the lovely warm spring weather we are having here in London. I hope it's going to continue even if the sun does show up all the dust and makes me realise I need to clean the windows. I hope the weather is good where you are.
