back to work

So after the short interlude and the disruption of the delivery
Its back to work

so, I've been teaching a beginners course at Stitchcraft Studio in Grantham

and my students have made great progress


this is from a class I taught last July


and a Take Twenty Class





Sandra was on my first beginners course and has finished her runner and has been used all through Christmas, she has also gone on to make plenty of other things too! 


and these are some of the fabrics being used on the Contraflow class





and if you are interested, there's a new page with where you can find me, teaching, talking that sort of thing.  If you're interested in me coming to do a class for your quilting group or a talk, please let me know. 

In addition, it was back to the customer quilts

and what a difference!

I managed to get this one basted, using a water soluble thread on top and Superior Bottom Line in the bobbin, though the 4 oz poyester wadding was a nightmare, not something I will repeat

and there were 2 of these beuaties


all over feathers on both, with Superior So Fine in white, and off white bottom line in the bobbin.  
and then I loaded this pretty


I used Superior Rainbows thread in Bubble Gum Pink, 
such a perfect description of a colour!

so I'm back in the saddle, and loving every minute of it!

There have been a few more, but I'll save the ones I can show you for another day!

Sadly I dont teach quilting but I know as a teacher of something less pretty and interesting the huge satisfaction you get from your students' learning. This is amazing T!

The students are doing so well! I love to hear about your quilting and the thread, thank you for sharing. I am going to be trying a lot of threads out this spring.
