Here are some of the quilts started in my class yesterday.  It is the Stack and Slash pattern.  There will be 2 of these child size quilts from one student.  The one with the big "I" in the top left corner was a mistake in piecing but her name starts with I so she put it in there for the photo.
I couldn't get my camera to catch the beauty of this purple and red one.  It is a little deeper toned than the photo. She got the top sewn together but in that photo the color is even farther off.

I finished my blocks in class and then put it on my design wall at home.  I had the floral print in10 of the blocks so it had to touch from block to block in a few places.  I don't think that is a bad thing though.
I sewed the orange top together last night but didn't get it pressed yet.  This is closer to the real color but a little pale.  I have found orange almost as hard to photograph as red.

I can't spell so I deleted my comment. I said that the looks of the class progress was very good. Also the orange quilt was very striking. Glad you had such a productive day. Chris

Good students make a great class. Of course it takes a good teacher to bring out the best in students.

Wow! So many wonderful quilts! I love them all and now I want to make one myself. But I will put the idea on the back burner. I have too many other things to finish first. I love your orange quilt! You're amazing Wanda!

Love that stack and slash. And the red and purple was my favorite combo even if it was hard to photograph. My mind is whirling with possibilities!

Your students always do a great job, but no wonder with such a great teacher!

I didn't realize there was a two-word verification now, I may have to remove mine too. It really discourages people from leaving comments, they are very hard to read.

Those Stack & Slash quilts look wonderful. I'll bet your class had a lot of help from you in picking out colors. :-)
