my modern quilting class fall 2011

I can't believe that tonight is my last class of the second session of Intro to Modern Quilting I've taught at Sewn Studio. This class has flown by for me. We have a full class of six students this time and they are creating some beautiful work! I'm always amazed at all of the different combinations of fabrics that the students come up with, and how completely different their finished quilts turn out, even though they are all using the same pattern. Noel, pictured above, used Kate Spain's Flurry for her Christmas themed quilt. Here are some other photos from last week's class.

Michelle is making a really fun, bright quilt for one of her daughter's. It's going to be a Christmas present for her and I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's done.

Ellen's quilt reminds me of a modern take on an Amish quilt with the black fabrics and bright mix of colors. So fun, right?

Theresa's quilt is a really fun mix of lots of different lines of fabrics, including a few from Peacock Lane. It's really beautiful.

And I love the soft palette of Karen's quilt. It's got all of these beautiful greens, pinks, creams, and browns in it. Just gorgeous.

They all are really gorgeous, and I can't wait to see how they turn out. I'm so proud of my students for the incredible work they're doing. Can you believe these are their very first quilts?!
