This hanging from Annie Downs' Hatched and Patched book should be in every caravan as a cushion or decoration!

Beginner's machine quilting

- Or perhaps I should say, beginner's no more!  Sue, Amanda, Jo, Di and Helen have just completed the last day of their Beginner's course and I think they should all feel pretty pleased with themselves!
Sue, Amanda, Jo and Helen with their quilts
As per usual, my picture really does not do their quilts justice (even with art direction from Amanda!) and you can hardly see Sue's at the end which is a great pity because the colours are beautiful.  Jo is going to send me a picture of hers - the one in the picture is a small quilt she was free-motion quilting today with help from Ann.  Di has also finished the course but missed this last day because she had a wedding to go to - hopefully she will send me a picture of hers too.  Helen's quilt is HUGE and Amanda's is particularly poignant - she has made it as a memory quilt for a friend.
As ever, the group really bonded and there have been a lot of laughs.  And it's so nice that on their final day they have gone away with a picture in their head of teacher Anne Ray telling the chap who was servicing her Aga to whip off his trousers.......
They are all very keen to carry on quilting, and will be signing up for Anne's more advanced classes - the pictorial class in Novermber and more in the spring.  Other people who have attended the beginner's groups in the past may also be interested.
