More Peas in a Pod....

Last night was an exciting night for the beginners making More Peas in a Pod. They worked on getting the borders sewn on to their quilts. They are beautiful! Donna chose a green, small print fabric for her backing fabric and binding.

It was fun to see their color choices come to life. We all loved how Ruth's border makes the other fabrics in the quilt sparkle.
 George's black print was a great contrast to his bold center! It really seemed to add that finished touch. I think it's always hard to know if you made the right fabric choices until the end....maybe that's what keeps us sewing! We have to see!
Joan made hers a little bigger than the pattern. She had to miss last week, so came Monday night to work on it with me before my sampler class so she could get caught up.
Lisa finished putting her borders on, but after we admired it, we went out to look at batting and I forgot to take a picture of her finished top....sorry Lisa! Her border of dog bones is so adorable, too! I will take pix next week when we gather to start putting it together.
Vicki couldn't make it last night, so I will get a picture of hers next week as well.

I'm teaching the Circle and Spin class tomorrow at Cut Up and Quilt. There are still a couple of openings.  That's always a fun one to teach because people find out that curves are not impossible and so much fun to cut and sew.  Happy Friday!

great quilts. I always like to see how the look of a quilt changes just by using different fabric.
would love to come and join your class with the circles. I like the look of that quilt.
