More Student Quilts

Well, I’m finally home after three wonderful weeks in New Zealand. It was a great trip, but it’s always nice to be back home. And I’m looking forward to being home over the holidays and maybe doing a little sewing.

My teaching schedule was fairly hectic right before my trip, so I was really pleased to get two e-mails this week from students who took my classes and finished projects that they started.

Here is a photo of the beautiful quilt that Donna James made.

And here is a photo of the right corner, showing her lovely quilting.

In her note to me, Donna says:

Hi Gail,
I completed this design in your The Goose is Loose class at MQX West in Portland. I really enjoyed the class and learned so much from you. I am so glad that I purchased your book and was able to use it as a reference when I was paper-piecing. It will be a great reference in the future, too. The longer flexible curve worked like a charm to replicate the curves in the upper background.
I have finished quilting my project, using a faced binding, and thought that you would like to see it.
Thanks for a great learning experience.

I also heard from Linda Talley of New Braufels Texas this week. Here is the beautiful quilt that she made.

And here is a close-up of her quilt.

Here’a what Linda has to say about her quilt:

Hi Gail,
I enjoyed your class at Houston so much – I actually finished something I started there!!!
Two photos are attached of the table runner I made with 6 of the “geese”. I quilted leaves as you did, but added bling.
Thank you again,
Linda Talley
New Braunfels, TX

It’s so gratifying to hear from students who took one of my classes and send me photos of the quilts they made. Thank you Donna and Linda!

    Your quilting is extraordinary! I particularly love that checkerboard quilting…and those teeny circles.

    What a beautiful quilt you’ve made…each of those fillers just jumps out from the background!
