    ...and this is what I made

    I didn't have enough time to get it completely finished. I still have to do another border, put the batting and the backing on, quilt it and add the binding. I had intended on doing a wall hanging rather than a lap quilt, but I forgot about doing that until I had everything cut out [​IMG] . I should have enough fabric left to do it.



    Another girl was making this one and the colors just pop right out at you! I love this one and may make one in the future!

    very pretty and such an undertaking for your first class!! now you'r gonna have to split your money & time between your chickens and quilting !!
    I teach small group classes quilting during the fall & winter (not much else to do after the snow flys)and love what students come up with.

    Quote:Thanks!

    Unfortunately, I don't have chickens any more so that just means all my time and money can go towards quilting, lol!

    Quote:Actually that lap size quilt CAN be made in one class - I teach the Quilt-in-a-day class for this pattern she made (trip around the world) and my students start at 8am-finish at 5pm and go home with their creations only having to finish tying the quilt.

    erthymom, this was a Quilt-in-a-Day class too, 9 am - 5pm. We had a few snafu's and a late start. She also had to show a lot of us how to do rotary cutting the right way. I want to try and machine quilt this quilt rather than tying it though.

    Scrambled, the thought has entered my mind several times. One of these days I sure will!

    Very pretty! A great way to use those small scraps left behind from other projects. This is called 'trip around the world' ?? I'm going to look into that!

    Quote:Actually Luna, using small scraps would take forever! We sewed long strips together then cut them down to the size we needed. Hard to explain but easy!
