Students' quilts............

L got her quilt top all sewn together at the class.  She chose borders so she will have it done soon.











D made a lot of progress on her quilt since last week.  It is a king size so the pieces are overlapped on the wall.  I love the multicolor Trip Around the Worlds so I will have to do another of them soon.  Let's see, that will mean I have 3 of them going at once.  I have a lot of fabric to use up so that is a good thing.  I bought the fabric to use, not to have in my estate sale.

Jackie said...

Maria said...

Your students quilts are beautiful. Great work girls.

Your students have a good teacher. And I like what you have to say about using up the fabric and not saving it for the estate sale. I'll have to remember that and get busy with sewing of more quilts.

Lets sew until there is no fabric left.
Does that mean we need to quit buying new fabric.

Oh I love the blue one, maybe when I get some of my other ones off my tableS to make room, maybe, just maybe I will start one of these, I have enough blue fabric for a few that is for sure.

I do love the colors in the king size one. Very pretty.

Beautiful quilt tops and start another quilt top! Love your remark that you're not buying fabric to put in your estate sale, too funny.

Char said...

Great quilts. Wanda, you are so funny. I know mine will end up in my estate sale!

The quilts are so beautiful. I think it is interesting how time changes quilts. My mother who was born in 1907 made an "Around the World" quilt but instead of a single square in the center she used 5 or 6 squares in a solid color and the next row was that color but in a print and the next row was a solid and so on and so on. My daughter has that quilt and it has always been a favorite of mine. Her quilts were completely done by hand including the quilting.

Lovely quilts, your talent is rubbing off on your students. I like what you said about an estate sale... I'm buying less and trying to use more of my stash!

I like your comment about using your fabric and not saving it for an estate sale...... am still laughing!

One of my favorite things is finding fabric and vintage fabric at sales, estate or not.

Have a great week!

That's a good line, 'not to have in my estate sale'! I'll have to make note of it. I'm sure it would apply equally well to some of my other things and not just fabric. You make me smile. :)
You have very lucky students. I hope they appreciate you.

Hi Wanda,
I bet your students are more than pleased with the quilt tops that are appearing! And all of yours look great. Love the close-up shot yesterday of the green one.
Enjoy the "warm" weather; I'm hoping some of the snow melts of the roof at the very least.
