Jelly Stars Top and Class

After a month of dry spell, it felt good to have this Jelly Stars top done last week as planned. All it needed was simple 4" dusty rose border.... easy peasy! The quilting won't be that easy though. My plan is to do some feather wreaths in those light blank spaces, so quilting this top will have to wait until I get more practices under my belt.

I had placed the top on the longarm machine for a photo shoot and look... the furry kids found a new place to play. *U*

On Saturday, I taught another Cathedral Window class... this time I didn't forget to bring the camera. ... left (closer) to right.... Lynda, Lyn, and Denise.

(photo above left to right.... Karen, Audrey, Bethany, Cathy, and Sarah)

There were 8 students in this class. Three of them are mom(Cathy) and daughters(Bethany, Sarah) team, and Sarah is the one who came all the way from Massachusetts! We scheduled this class specifically for them. They are so sweet! Cathy and Bethany started quilting about 3 months ago and are hooked onto quilting!

Lyn and Karen are also beginners. Actually, Lyn mentioned that it's been a long while since she's sewn and had to reacquainted with her sewing machine at first. After that, she and her machine were humming along. Then, Karen admitted to me at the end of class that she'd never made a quilt before. I was blown away! She did great keeping up with the class. They all did a wonderful job... I was so proud!

Here's Lynda with her Cathedral Window. She used Pumpkin Gone Wild by Moda in Layer Cake. It turned out so cute!

I hope that she likes it 'cause I was the one who talked her into using this collection. lol

And here are the sisters.... Bethany used Twiggy collection; Sarah used two colors. Don't their CW look great?!
