Learn to Quilt Fall 2011

The Fall 2011 Learn to Quilt class finished up last week. I am so proud and want to share their beautiful quilts with all of you. Please let me know if I got any of your names mixed up ... and if I did, I am so sorry. I will always remember your face (and your quilt)!

Lori is a girl on a mission! Her quilt will be a cherished gift. Not only did she finish her quilt top, she quilted it herself!

Lori used up scraps and pieced the back!

Here is Ann's quilt ... look what a beautiful job she did matching the directional print in the outer border! The warm yellow middle border sets off the red geese ... and the soft green inner border looks great.

One of Catherine's goals was to step outside her color comfort zone and use brighter, bolder colors. Her quilt is sunny and joyful ... and the red inner border sets it off beautifully.

Heather used softer colors in her quilt and decided to make the inner, striped border a little bit narrower so it sets off the center without overpowering the quilt. She is binding her quilt with the striped fabric cut on the bias ... I think that will be the perfect finish for her quilt!

Noelle's quilt is a gift for her daughter. Aren't these soft, romantic colors beautiful? The soft blues for the stars and flying geese read clearly ... not easy to achieve when using a close range of values. Noelle used diagonal seams in her outer border to minimize their visibility.

Susan's quilt is made from beautiful, fall colors. The middle border of her fabric uses two directional prints. She did a great job orienting her fabrics so the subtle stripe in the brown fabric is consistent and the lines of dots in the taupe print flow visually.

Congratulations! I am thrilled and so very proud of you all.
