|... like this selection from Lynette's stash, |
for her version of Anne's 'Summer' quilt ...
... and Elaine's palette.
|Precision gluing was achieved with the help of a variety |
of instruments - this is crane's wings, and Marilyn is
prepping his body shape
|We set our machines for tiny stitches and practised slow, |
deliberate stitching for a neat, secure edge ... and it worked!
|The crane crest has beautiful but tight curves, and pointy |
wings and beak, requiring care, and some revision at times,
to achieve such good results as Roslyn's, prepared for stitching.
Georgie chose complimentary oriental prints
for her Kamon crests - this is one of the
crane's wings, ready to be stitched.
|Anne is an excellent and encouraging teacher |
... and we loved her hand knitted cardigan!
|Design reference points were traced to backgrounds, |
and the layering of pieces began
|We had a little show and tell from our previous class with |
Anne - Margaret's blocks were much admired
(as were Daphne's, but the photo opportunity was missed!)
|Lynette's Hishigata quilt was finished in time for our |
show in April - it was good to see it again.
