Yesterday I finished teaching my Hidden Zipper Quilted Pillow class at The City Quilter in Manhattan (oh dear, do you have any idea how hard it is for me to type that? It's a cushion and a zip and always will be for me, you can take the girl out of England and all that!!!).
It was a two session class - the first class we quilted the cushion front and second class we created the zip backing and completed the cushion.
Loved every minute, such a great group of ladies and here's a round up of the pics
Jo (who doesn't like having her pic taken ;D)
Everyone adapted the pattern to suit themselves - the direction and width of the quilting, fabrics and thread used and Trudy very successfully added piping to her cushion as well as using the most difficult fabric and thread! With more fabrics already chosen, cut out and even quilted I know there'll be plenty more cushions from these ladies very, very soon - Andrea actually finished two cushions in class but I forgot to snap a pic of her second one.
And here's the obligatory line up of all our work, including my What's Your Hobby? class sample, You're all stars and I'm super proud, hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as I did :D
Can't finish without saying thanks to Jo for supplying Whole Foods Chocolate Chip cookies at each session - I really wish she wouldn't because then I have to eat them ;D and also to Linda who bought this pressie for my new Grandson Oliver to the second session and made me fill up with happy tears.
