Classes at Cathy's

Classes at Cathy's Sew and Vac / Honey Run Quilters, Chico CA
Two of my classes at Cathy's this week were sew much fun! Thursday was the third session of the Carpenter's Star quilt we are making in Quilting 101 class ~ putting on borders. We added an inner and a second outer border...
This is Kathy W's quilt with the inner borders sewn on and one outer border.
She emailed that all her borders are on now :0) and she is ready for quilting in our next session! Love her enthusiasm and this is her first ever quilt!!! I'd say she is a natural for quilting. Wouldn't you agree?
This is my top with two borders on and the side borders up on the design wall next to the top. They are now pieced to length and attached.

More pics after the next class including Kathy T's quilt top. She was not ready for a photo at the end of class and promised to send one when her top is together. Have fun on your trip to the Eastcoast!

Yesterday, Saturday was my Paper Piecing class. After a simple practice piece we made flower pots designed by Anja Townrow. Her book, Dutch Flower Pot is wonderful and available at Amazon. Click the book title for the link to Amazon or Anja's name for a link to her website. TIA

Here is Takako's beautiful flower pot. She plans to buy Anja's book :0)
Here is Claudia's flower pot, not quite finished in class. I cropped the second photo. She emailed last night that she did finish her block when she got home and is happy with the result :0) Love the fabrics!


This is Kathy T's. She made a different flower pot, a little harder and in two parts. Gorgeous Kathy!
