More Students' Miniatures
The only thing I love more than teaching my Miniatures class, is getting photos from students of what they have done as a result of the class. It's been a long while since I have shown any student's work, so I think it's time... I have one, possibly two, Miniatures workshops coming up this spring so I always get bitten by the bug once again when there's a class upcoming. I like to have a few new ones to show if possible... I have several underway, but nothing far enough along to share with you yet. But back to some completed by students...
I just received these two photos last night from Theresa O. of PSLCQG who won a first place ribbon last weekend in the Small Pieced category at her guild show for Little Red Bear Paws. Finished size is 17.5" square. Congrats Theresa! It is fabulous. Look at her quilting! Wow! What a super job she has done!
Next up, from a class last July, is Martha E. from TTQG with Primary School, 13.5" square and hung on point. I love it!! Isn't it sweet? Perfect points on perfect little fishies...
I think Jeanne W. of MCQG is hooked on minis. She has done a few and although I haven't heard from her recently, I bet she's still at it... Here are two photos she has sent me since I taught the class she attended last winter. I just love this little ninepatch combined with Sunbonnet Sue. It is 11" square, the nine patches measure 1.5." It includes hand appliqué, prarie points and the tatted flowers were Jeanne's 14 year old granddaughter Grace's first attempt at tatting! Wow! Creative talent runs in the family, I'd say.
Another by Jeanne, a 13" square Pineapple.
Log Cabin and Pineapple blocks have long been favourites of mine, I haven't seen one yet that I didn't love!!
EDIT Feb.9: I just received an email from Jeanne telling me she won a first place ribbon this past weekend in the PSLCQG show for Oh, My Stars!
....and Jane T. won a ribbon also, for her Tiny Logs. Although I have shown these two miniatures before here, I think they're worthy of another look, especially with ribbons attached, don't you think?!
Last but certainly not least is Gloria T. of TQG. Gloria is prolific, and tends to finish each project. I hear she never has UFO's. (I can't imagine...) I think Gloria really was bitten by the deadly miniature bug when I had her in class.. She has sent me at least half a dozen photos of completed minis... so here are two more. First a 6" square Log Cabin. Lots of little logs! Sweet!!
And lastly a Grandmother's Fan done in Oriental fabrics. This one looks like it might be hand quilted...
Awesome job, everyone! I'm so proud of you all! Keep sending me those pics!!
