Quilt Class Pics ~

Oh,....we DO have fun!!!
our little quilt class was today here in the shop~
Here's Felicia, talking about the 'proper' way of hand-quilting....

...she really likes to teach how she learned to quilt,
to measure, cut & stitch exactly,
so your little quilt doesn't end up all...

She really does know her stuff, and I admire her
I am one that doesn't follow rules, persay...
So, after Flea left,
I "UNtaught" the girls how to hand quilt...
I don't measure...
I NEVER cut straight. little quilts look like they were made by a child....
here's Robin's (above)

and Denise's (above)

...and Jane's (above)

...and Sue's (above)

and, Winnie's (above)...
each one of them perfect in their very own way...
I'm so proud of my students!

you may notice that each quilt may differ in size from student-to-student...
whether it is sewing, stitching, hooking, punching, dollmaking or painting...
the foundation of the class is laid out for you,
it is up to YOU to finish it the way you like...
each one a piece from your heart~
 I love to see your finished projects!!!

Blessings from the Farm,


  1. Looks like a fun class and day at the shop Lori! I'm afraid I'm like Felicia when it comes to the pieced quilts! Wish I could be more carefree like you with different things so they have that naive, child like look but I'm too rigid I guess! LOL

  2. Thanks Lori for a fun filled day, and yes I did learn some also!! Do we get to have an advanced class??
    Have a good evening and will talk to you later.xo (millstonemercantile)
