Spring Picnic class

Hi everyone
Last Saturday I taught my Spring Picnic quilt to a lovely group of ladies at The Patchwork Angel.  Here is my quilt, still needing to be quilted and ironed, but we wont worry about that right now.  This quilt comes together using either pre cut jelly rolls or 2 1/2" strips from yardage.
In this class the girls could cut their pieces with either the Hex n More ruler or

the traditional 60 degree triangle ruler, and still have the same results.

Here are some of the girls work, somehow I missed  two, very sorry Gail and Jules.  I might be able to get a pic from Jules shortly.

Jenny is using all shades of blue from aqua to almost navy, I was in love with some of her fabrics. Jenny is going to sash the braids with this dark aqua,

Sally is using jelly rolls and her braids will be sewn with the fabric in an organised pattern so each braid will be the same, lovely.  Sally was in my Wonky Stars class last year, she has that one just about finished and I hope to see it soon.

Robyn's Picnic quilt will be in shades of pink, fuchsia and purples, this selection is from a Bali Pop.  I'm looking forward to seeing this one finished, might have something to do with the fact that I love pink.  Robyn's sashing is an eggplant purple Moda solid, stunning

 Beth's fabrics are bright and fun and sweet, this will be so cute.

These are made by Denise and they are a wonderful collection of blues, browns yellow and greens with a cream sashing, bright and fun with a great mix of prints and solids.

This is Deb, say hi to Deb everyone.  Deb had a wonderful mix of colours and prints also.

here is all the girls at the end of class showing there great work.  All the ladies were very quick at picking up the cutting and piecing and so we had a good time chatting and sewing, the best way to spend a Saturday morning.  Thank you all for coming.
I so look forward to seeing this quilts come together and seeing the ladies again in another class with me.
