Begining Quilting class successes

Ana chose bright, happy prints and stripes
with her daughter, Sophie, in mind.
Another group of people have joined the ranks of quilters after successfully completing my Beginning Quilting by Machine class this month. The classic Churn Dash block took on different personalities through the quiltmaker's choice of fabrics, prints, thread color and quilting designs.

Congratulations, quilters, on all your sharp points, even borders and especially the originality in your quilting designs! Your hard work has paid off with beautiful results. Welcome to the extensive quilting family.
The floral border and small check sashing accentuates
Frances' collection of 30s fabrics in her scrappy quilt.
Janet quilted minaret shapes in the borders of her quilt
to echo the images in the fabric.
The rich eggplant Churn Dashes contrasts beautifully with
Nancy's choice of a fall harvest print in the border.
Martha created a focal point with an
unexpected print in the midst of her solid fabric blocks.
Jenny's yummy red-white-and-green color scheme reminds me
of a candy shop! This happy quilt is going to a lucky granddaughter.
 Here is a slide show of their 5 week journey.
