Day 6 of Jane Austen Finishing School

I had another lovely class of ladies today with lots of chatter, laughing and sewing, of course! Fortunately, we were oblivious to the 40 degree temperature outside!

Here are some photos of the great work being done:

First, this is Margaret's "Longbourne" with the first two of her clam shell borders sewn on and mitred. Her quilt is very beautiful with its red borders and fabulous appliqué. She has been sewing non stop this month.

This is Melanie's "Netherfield" centre.  It looks so lovely with its appliqué and piecing in shades of soft brown, green and touches of purple.

Here are her elongated hexagon borders glued on ready to be sewn. Very gorgy!

Then here is Leanne's "Spikes and Specks" blocks - always pretty, Leanne!

Linda brought her completed and quilted "Fandango" in for show and tell.  This is one of my whack and stack designs.  Linda began with a stunning bright pink Japanese fabric for her border and used it in her circles.  This quilt makes you smile, it is so bright and happy. Yumcious!

Another great day of sewing fun.  Thank you, ladies.
