For our June quilt class, we did strip-piecing, using that technique for 6″ Nine Patch blocks. We also combined the strip-piecing and half-square triangles for a 12″ Jacob’s Ladder block. Our final block was a 6″ Spool. What fun we had laying out all the blocks that the gals had made. There were so many different looks—just so inspiring!
We’re coming up on our last quilt class in which we’ll talk about assembling all of our 12″ and 6″ blocks together, adding borders, layering, quilting and binding. The gals are all at different stages. Libby has actually finished two quilt tops, one in Balis, and one in 1800’s reproduction fabrics. Lane finished a fabulous red and white quilt top. Other gals are still working on their blocks with plans to make table runners. Katie has gone off in an entirely different direction and has pieced a big-block beach-blanket quilt top in a modern mix of fabrics. Be watching for some pretty neat quilts, we’ll be sharing more of them soon!
