Class results!!!!


Wow--yesterday was an actual "Plan A" kinda day--they really don't happen all that often: I made it to class around 5:30--I am usually early--always like to look around, or look at the model some more and decide if I want some different/more fabric--and I did get 4 more pcs last night before class---Here's the full size wall hanging with my instructor holding it for me (of course it had to come out a little bleary--sorry):
The pattern we used is:
The pattern is by Cindi Edgerton and is called the Little Bits- The one we used last night is called "Square on Square"--and it comes with the tissue paper foundation for the sewing--there is enough tissue patterns that you can make 3 of the wall hangings--that's neat!!
This is the center of Joey's quilt--the instructor and here is mine:
I used a couple of the same fabrics and then added a couple others to make mine alittle different--I am one of "THOSE" People who like to be different----
This is the block that you needed 4 of just alike to make the star part of the pattern:
And here are my four that I completed this afternoon--again the picture is off on the colors--but hopefully you can get a good idea here--tomorrow I hope to get the 4 corner blocks made!!!
I did learn how to do paper piecing the correct way--I had some knowledge of it and had done a couple things on my own--so I had mainly taken the class because I really liked the model and it's colors--and I wanted to see if I really did know what I was doing--when I came out of class at 9pm to walk home the sky was dark, but no clouds as you could see the bright golden sliver of the moon glowing in the sky--that made taking the class even more special.

Will I do more paper piecing after this one wall hanging is done--well--I will just keep you all guessing for now????????

Take care stay safe--hugs, just, Di

Enjoyed the photos from your class. I took one paper piecing class before and didn't enjoy it that much, but maybe I need to take another:D

Very nice. I love paper piecing for the accuracy. I can't wait to see the finished piece.

Sounds like a great class and the pictures show a fun looking shop - I spy a few things on the walls that look fun, too *s*
