And here is a selection of the fabulous hoops made by my ever creative ladies most of whom appear terribly camera shy.
Just one more small project to go before we get down to planning part 2 of our course, more of that later.
Meanwhile, some of you may recall that earlier this year, many of my students contributed blocks to Nicky's Siblings Together drive. Recently, Nicky asked me if I thought we could go one better for next year and perhaps come up with a quilt. So I put on my thinking cap and came up with a plan. I have asked for 20" quilted blocks - just nine of these will join together into a pretty decent 60" quilt. I have planned four different colour options and have already had lots of blocks pledged (and some already made!!)
My role will be to join the blocks using QAYG strip techniques and then bind them too.
Here is the block I have come up with -
and how such a block will look in a quilt -
The ladies in my classes always rise to a worthy challenge and I have no doubts that together, we will pull this off too.
