I have pictures to share today from the Urban Abacus class I taught last week. I love teaching, I get so excited seeing the girls "get" the techniques, stop being worried about what to come, and start having fun when they see it not that hard. Anyone can tell when the fun starts by the way the girls start talking about fabric choices for the next quilt they make.
Urban Abacus is from Sew Kind of Wonderful and uses the Quick Curve Ruler. So far I feel this is about the easiest quilt to cut and piece using the Ruler.
We had the class at The Patchwork Angel, and again the shop helps us all relax and create in a very pretty and wonderful class room. During the class we get used to the cutting and then sewing curves and then the final trim of the blocks. This all takes time to make sure everyone is confident so when the girls get home they can pick up right where we left off in class.
This pink and vintage quilt is mine as a class sample. Everyone knows this is mine, cause it so pink.
Kaye is using bright purples,pinks and greens with a black background for a sons girlfriend. He must think she is a keeper to deserve a quilt.
Robyn is sewing with some fantastic Aboriginal prints. Robyn I am looking forward to seeing this one finished.
Daphne's quilt is going to be so cool and modern with black and white prints mixed with the aqua background
Bev is making her quilt in a classic blue and white combination
And lastly, Sue is using a beautiful collection of soft florals in pinks and greens with a cream background.
Wonderful work by all the ladies and I would love to see all of these quilts when they are finished. They will all be beautiful.
My next teaching gig is on Saturday 30th of May. I will be teaching the Metro Hoops quilt by Sew Kind of Wonderful and the Quick Curve Ruler. The class will be held at The Patchwork Angel again and I believe there are still a couple of spots left, give the girls a call and come along and join the fun.
This stunning version is from one of my students from the last time I taught Metro Hoops, very different to my white and pretty one above.
See you all soon
