Quilting Class

Craftland continues to hold regular classes through the summer, and through Ramadan.
Today's class was day two of Layer Cake Quilt - Beginners' Quilting. Last Sunday, the first day, we looked at the Layer Cake squares & discussed options for putting it together: random? in a pattern? We had lots of fun shuffling the squares, and then sewed them together to make the main quilt top.

Today was Border Day. We spent some time choosing fabrics & talking about border widths. After playing with the bolts of fabric, we settled on three borders. Here is Diane pressing her first border strip open.

Check out the cool cutting mat and ironing surface! The Foldaway portable cutting & pressing station is made by Omnigrid & folds into a convenient case to carry to classes. Very handy for classes, or to use at home.Thanks, Diane, for modelling it for us so well!
