New Quilt group

My quilt teacher, Aagje, has been away for a while due to health issues. So in January I was informed that my normal Thursday class would be cancelled. This meant I had to look for an other group I could join. Thankfully there was still a free slot in a Monday evening group.

The nice thing when you switch classes is that you meet new quilters. It always amazes me how different every quilter is and how different the quilts they make turn-out.

Here are some of their works.

A huge quilt – using fabrics from old men’s shirts.


A quilt in progress. Dutch fabrics surrounding a centre block of a farmhouse.


Another quilter is designing her own quilt. Wow, hope to see it sometime.


One of the other quiltmakers is making this quilt – Girls Day Out, by Libby Richardson.



A finished quilt


Another quilter is making a Dear Jane, too. She has nearly completed another border. Won’t show my progress LOL


I finally sewn all the stems on the background fabric for this  Jane’s Garden Quilt – a Di Ford Hall design.


Maybe I should start calling myself a snail quilter! My progress is really slow but I like the result so far! Did you see the picture in the previous post of the finished quilt. It will be absolutely awesome.
