I've been back at the sewing machine sewing up samples for another class I'll be teaching in the new year at my LQS. It is that classic pattern of Crossed Canoes. I chose very soft small prints as I have been wanting to use fabrics like this for awhile.
The piecing was quick and the whole lap quilt came together very quickly.
I had some wool wadding that was just the right size and as a result gave this quilt a lovely loft when it was quilted.
I'm thrilled with the results and reckon this will be just about the last finish for 2011.
By my count I've finished 14 quilts this year. I'm really pleased with those statistics! :o) Granted most of them were lap quilts...but a finish is a finish! :o)
Here are the details on the class for those of you that are local.

As easy as 1-2-3...just 3 cuts and you’ll be on your way to creating this lovely two-toned quilt. Come along and learn about a unique cutting and piecing technique. I’ll show you some of the other blocks that you can sew in the same way and it is sure to leave you inspired. No templates and no foundation piecing. Ideal class for the confident beginner to advanced.
