Friday's hand sewing class

This is a quilt top made by Mary-Ann, from the Friday hand sewing class, which she started in a workshop held by Margaret Sampson-George last year called 'Take an Element'. There's some paper piecing in there, needle turn appliqué, and a whole lot of work. The French General fabric looks gorgeous on the linen back ground, and the borders are perfectly bold and strong. The class was a lesson in composition as well as form and colour (and of course there was the sewing too!). Margaret Sampson-George will be teaching again at Hettie's Patch on 18th & 19th of April (project details to come soon).
