I went to a local craft shop to learn quilt as you go and I was disappointed as I knew more than the teacher. She did not know how to do a more advanced way of doing the quilt as you go method. I was given a magazine and told that is what you will make. It was a nice table runner but the pattern was not what I wanted, as it was the sandwich method to put together. I was told to sew 1 section to the pellon and backing, sew the next stip onto this and flip the second piece back and keep doing this till the strips were gone. I know this is this the simplest form of quilt as you go but again not what I wanted. My friend Dawn will now help me to achieve my goal. The finished table runner is pretty and I added stars and raw edged them and then shadow quilted around them to fill the space, I also added shadow stars to the bigger areas so the runner would sit right on the table. I wont be going there again for lessons.
I have finished 1 of the March stitch-a- longs in the new colours to replace the red ones i made into a wall hanging and have 2 more to go.
