I am a month behind on posting any updates from the sewing classes at Limberlost- it has just been so busy on Tuesdays that I never took any photos a few weeks ago. But being that busy means we got a lot accomplished!
Here are some photos from this past Tuesday- Milehat and Nikki were the two students who could make it. Nikki has been working on a baby blanket and last week she was able to get the most of the quilt tied. Christine demonstrated to Jessie and Irene how to tie a quilt, so now we all know the proper way to do it! Thanks Christine! This week Nikki was putting on the binding with Lyndsey’s guidance. All that is left is for Nikki to hand sew around the binding and it will be ready for the baby she is giving this quilt to as a gift.
Milehat is working on a flannel rag quilt she started a few weeks ago. She is currently sewing the 2 squares together, then she will be sewing those blocks into rows and eventually cutting all the edges to fray the blocks.
And a day of sewing wouldn’t be complete without Nikki pulling yet another project she is working on from her bag! This lady never sleeps with the amount of quilts she is working on! She is making the last of the quilts for her 4 children. She pieced the string blocks into the centre and this week we worked on adding borders and 4 blocks on the corners. We finished 3 sides, and Nikki will be making 2 more blocks at home this week and then on the upcoming Tuesday we will add the last border. Nikki would also like to tie this quilt so she chose some thicker cotton thread to use and next week we will get it all pin basted and ready to tie.
Sadly this week was Lyndsey, one of our volunteers last day. She has taken a job and will be moving at the end of the week. Thank you Lyndsey for all your help! We will miss you!
