W. I. P. Wedensday Jan18

Well today my w i p is to get a few other ladies to have their own w i p's.
class samples

class demos
 prepped and ready to go

I will be teaching a class for our Community College here in town. We will be doing what I have called a 9 Patch with a Twist a k a Disappearing 9 Patch. I have made this one for a few years and have enjoyed it and the ease of making it. Sew when I was asked if I could teach a beginner class this is the one I thought of. I have my own directions but have also included some from Rachel at She did grant me permission to use it in my hand out for the class and I will have a sample made from it there. Quilters are the best .... thanks Rachel.

 Rachel is a busy mom with a lot on the go, but she finds time to quilt , design and share with us. I did participate in quilt along that she had in ......2010 or was it 2009..... the Pinwheel quilt along. I doubled mine up and still want to add some side borders just to make it a little wider.

  3. Good luck with your classes Annette , your blocks look great and I love the pinwheel in progress quilt , I do love pinwheels :-) Stay warm , that sounds dreadful.

  4. I'm sure the class will love it.. the colours alone are wonderful... I did my first dis 9 patch last year..... great pinwheel quilt aswell...

  5. Hi Annette, it's too bad you had to go out on one of the probably coldest days of the year, but I bet the class appreciated what you had to show them. I love the disappearing nine-patch! I keep looking for other ways to set it, and other techniques that have that "aaahh" moment to them. The pinwheel quilt looks nice!

  6. D9P is one of my favorites - it'll be a great beginner's class! Love the pinwheels!
