the final class of my intro to modern quilting class



I've been meaning to share these photos with you for about a month now, but to say that November was hectic would be an understatement. Better late than never, though, right? Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway of an AccuQuilt Go! Baby! Fabric Cutting System and your choice of three dies and my giveaway on Where Women Create of a yummy FQ stack of Kona Cotton and a copy of Modern Log Cabin Quilting!


Here are some photos of the last night of my Fall 2011 Intro to Modern Quilting Class at Sewn Studio here in Cincinnati. To say that I'm incredibly proud of the work that my students did would be an understatement. These are their first quilts! Can you believe it?

The quilt above was made by Michelle as a Christmas gift for one of her daughters. I love her use of color!



And look how she pieced the middle of the back of her quilting using scraps from the front. Beautiful!




The next quilt was made by Teresa. Gorgeous! I think her palette is really nice with all the creams and grays with pops of coral.



For the quilting, Teresa stippled her quilt. Amazing, right? These aren't small quilts, either, and kudos to Teresa for picking something so challenging for her first quilt.




And here's the back. I love those prints from Violet Craft's Peacock Lane!



Ellen's quilt is so striking! She used some very small, bright tonal prints that almost read as solids, and chose black for the sashing and borders. Her quilt reminds me of some Amish quilts that I have seen, but with a really modern twist.



And here's the back. So fun!


Once again we used the Fenced In pattern by Elizabeth Hartman that is found in her book The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmaker. I just love how different all of the quilts look, even though all the students are following the same pattern. It's so fun for me to watch them create and grow as quilters over the course of the six-week class. And I couldn't be more proud of them!
