Quilting Class: Week 12

We have finished with this year's quilting class, and everyone has a quilt top made with their own hands.  Hopefully, they are also taking a lot of information and inspiration with them.

Here are the students and their quilt tops:

Pam Osborn wants to use her skills to make quilts for her granddaughter.  She is a fan of quilting books and the Internet sites about quilting. She does excellent work.

Valerie Sherer's quilt top turned out great, with her using all the bright greens and yellows.  In addition to working full time, she and her family moved during our weeks of classes, but she never missed a meeting.

Emma Sherer is fourteen and has amazing talents in many areas.  She added a lot to our class, and I'm so glad she was able to attend.  She wrapped herself in her quilt top as soon as it was finished.

Denise Davis is  multi-talented, and a hard worker.  She would work all day, then come to our class, then go to choir practice afterward. A few weeks ago, she ran a half marathon in Huntsville.  One of her skills in cake making, and on the last night of class, she brought this cake to celebrate.

As you can see, it is a scrap block.  Denise had made eighty blocks at this point, and she was familiar with how they look. I was impressed by the seam lines--she made them using a rotary marker.  In addition, the cake was delicious!

It has been a pleasure working with these ladies, and I am going to miss them.  

This class was made possible by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
