Class Samples

The next "term" at my LQS begins tomorrow so I've been trying to finish up my class samples. The quilt I have been quilting this week is a Yellow Brick Road pattern.

Good Fortune YBR 1

I finished quilting it yesterday. The binding fabric is at the store, go figure! So I'll have to go and get it today. Below is a photo of the back so you can see the quilting better. You may need to click on the photo to see it larger.

I also made another Yellow Brick Road quilt as a sample.

The class is will be a follow-up course to our Piecing 101 class and is several sessions so I can take students through the entire quilt making process, from picking out fabric to attaching the binding and making a label.

Another class I will be teaching is the Corn Rows pattern.

Corn Rows
I blogged about this one already. Go here to read that post. I never showed the finished quilt top with the border though. I had hoped to have it quilted before displaying it at the store. Oh well, it will get quilted eventually.

I made another sample from the book the Corn Rows pattern is from, Graphic Mixx, just to show another pattern from the book.

Bohemian Stripe
I'm not happy with the contrast section though. I think I may reverse those two fabrics and see what that looks like. It will be easy to remove that section and replace it. I can use the other on the back.

I'm teaching some other classes too. You can see photos of all of our class samples on the Heartstrings & Heirlooms blog. As well as see the latest newsletter and calendar. Just click the appropriate tabs underneath the header.

The blocks I showed you on Wednesday did not get turned into a finished quilt top on Wednesday. They are now in rows and I hope to get the rows sewn together today at some point. You will get to see that finished top next week.

I love how you go for it on your FMQing. It's just great.

What are you not happy about with the contrast on the Bohemian quilt? I love that quilt. It has great design.

Love Corn Rows, and Bohemiam Stripe is very nice too. You are a busy bee these days.
