Week 2 of Summer School

Already I have taught nine Summer School workshops, and the weather is living up to that name.  We are living through a major heatwave here in Sydney.  It will be 45 degrees Celsius today (113 F)!

Despite this we have had some fun times in class working on projects started last year (or before) and starting some new ones!

Alexis only started her pretty pink and grey blocks for “Charlotte” last week and now here are all the blocks together and the first border on. This is the very first quilt teenage Alexis has made and I am sure it will not be the last.  She has done a beautiful job.

Here are the blocks laid out on the carpet at The Stitchers Cupboard.

Jan was also working on “Charlotte”, making her blocks in striking red and golden brown.

Here are Sue’s beautiful blocks for “Hopetoun”.  We set the top half of the quilt in different ways.
Now it is up to Sue to decide which one to use for her quilt!

Here are some more “Hopetoun” block colour schemes.  The first is by Glynnis and the second by Iain.

Glynne is making baby star blocks for her Miss Lucas Star Satchel.  She found paper foundation piecing difficult at first but here are two gorgeous stars.
Hi Glynne.

At Hobbysew, both Anne and Meredith were working on their “Morris Holiday” Jelly Friends Quilts.  Anne is using green sashings.

Meredith is using red sashings and has now joined the blocks together and started adding the rectangle borders.  Wow!

Dru is making a very pretty version of “La Belle” in one of my favourite colour combinations, pink and green.

In between all these classes, I have now completed about 110 hours of hand quilting on my Ottoman tent inspired quilt.

Stay cool everyone and happy stitching!
