My students in the hand stitching class

I have a class of six ladies who now are learning how to handstitch. They are learing different tricks and tecniques in how to make traditional blocks. Starting with ohio star, drunkards path, hands all around aso and in the end they will put them together to a sampler. They are learning it so fast and asks for more patterns all the time. And I enjoy teaching them. Below are photos from the class. One lady had to leave early and did not come on the photo.

And here is some of the blocks they have made so far.
It will be fun when they have sewed all their blocks together. Although they have used the same patterns, the fabrics make them so different. But we still have 3 more evenings left before they can show their tops. And then they have to hand quilt them on their own.
It is so fun that the last days I have got comments on my tutorial about making cubes. If you do make some cubes pleas let me know.
And a little request for you who comments on blogs. Several of you still comes up with no reply. Please check your profil if you allow your email adress to show. It makes it more easy for us to reply.
Quilt Saying for today:
Quilters aren't greedy, they're just materialistic

Your ladies are making beautiful blocks. It's fun to see the same block made in different fabrics--the variety always amazes me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. That little four patch was a lot of fun to make.

Lucky ladies to be learning hand piecing. An afternoon of handstitching and visiting is so pleasant.

The blocks of your students look wonderful. It will be nice to see how the quilts will look when they are finished. I'd have you for a teacher any day.

Helen said...

Great blocks. I am sure the quilts will be lovely.

Like Nadine I'd love to be one of your students. Taking a series those classes from you would be so much fun.

It will be so much fun to see the quilts come together, they will all look so different even with using the same pattern.
Great work teacher.
I'm courious about the making cubes. What is that?

Just starting to catch up May. Your students have done marvelous work! Isn't it just the most fun turning on others to quilting? I loved teaching the beginning classes and watching their eyes light up and their faces break into smiles when they realized what they could do. You are obviously a very good teacher.

What wonderful looking blocks. I'll bet they are having a great time with you, as well as learning from a good teacher. Six more customers to keep your quilt shop open! =)

Your class looks so fun. The blocks are looking good.

They are doing a great job on those blocks. I know that Hands All Around is not a particularly easy block to piece traditionally. It was my previous guild's name and the block we had to have on our aprons at the quilt show. When you are a beginning quilter, that was a pretty tall order! At least they used a stencil for our name badges

What beautiful blocks! And your students must have a lot of fun learning these beautiful patterns from you! What size block are you teaching them? I love those patterns, and have pieced most of them in 6" squares for my SBS. I don't hand piece all that much (basically curves) but I love the tranquility of it. Have fun the next 3 evenings! Take care!

Dawn said...

Oh I can't believe how wonderful their blocks are! I can't hand piece at all! What a treasure you are teaching them!
