Why an independent study class?

An independent study gives you time and space to work on your own thing in a creative environment. And, in my class, you get help if/when you want it. 

I had 11 women last week all working on something different. Some were more relaxed (it was a vacation, after all), others sewed relentlessly. It was great!

Jean honed her applique skills. 



And taught herself to sew a diamond block, with y-seams, using our Piecing book. 


Margaret focused on a quilt that she is making for a guild challenge. She nailed the mitered corners and the perle cotton applique stitches. 


Yolanda completed so many things that I sort of lost count. I especially liked this top that is the result of a log cabin block exchange. 


Susan was also knocking down the projects. She has a system for keeping up with her piecing that is very efficient. I was impressed. 


Marie sewed on a foundation paper piecing project and left with her arcs nearly finished. 


Louise made the foundation paper pieced blocks all week and worked right up to the last minute to get them ready to together. 


I kind of like the quilt turned sideways. 


I’ll post more tomorrow, promise :-).

    • I’ve replied to Chris, but if anyone else is curious, the pattern is Swirligig by Piece By Number, from 2014. Look for piecebynumber.com .
