Pie Class

Teaching Pie, Sweet or Savory this past Saturday was a blast!
Below is the story in pictures. 
Unfortunately we don't have pictures of every student. 
Nor do we have photos of the tasty lunch provided by the Quilting Connection.
We offer special thanks to our students! 
Three traveled 4 hours to arrive at 10 am. You do the math! 
Others we've taught or helped at the store in the past. 
Several were new faces we were lucky to meet.

Jill starting off with a demo of the simple 3 pin technique in the Pie block.

Julie sorting arcs, crusts, and wedges.

Lori planning cuts and choices.

Maria's two fabric choices included a green fabric 
with a wide range of values across it's width. 
This choice added variety to her composition.

Amber, a rookie quilter, is knocking out her blocks with ease.

Thyra double checking her scant 1/4" seam allowance. 
(An important lesson to us all)

Carol working on those simple curves!

Interesting approach to the pattern, Linda maintained the same print throughout the wedges and crusts.

Some of Elaine's harmonious choices in gray, yellow and white. 
Note, she still has lights, mediums, and darks.

Kelly finger pressing and constructing her blocks.

Trimming the oversized block following our helpful tips and diagram!

Table runner plan!

A good start on a happy throw.

Auditioning arrangements to distribute values.

Leslie's two fabric Savory queen underway!

Technique accomplished Linda!
Thanks again to our students and the Quilting Connection in Ames, Iowa. It was a fun and rewarding day.
Till Tuesday...
