Teacher For A Night

Or three, really.

I'm filling in as teacher for a patchwork class for three weeks. Tonight I took along a few quilted items to show the students:
Some of these I've shown here before, such as the hottie cover and the potholder closest to the bottom. In the background is my "friendship star" couch quilt, which I made quite a few years ago. On the left is my uneven log-cabin Christmas wreath wall hanging. I worked out the pattern from a photo seen on the internet, and then after I'd made it I discovered I actually had the pattern in an old Burda magazine. The yellow daisy is another potholder I made earlier this year, which I don't seem to have blogged. The block design is "Daisiez"by Jan Mullen. For this potholder I used one layer of the Thermolam batting, and one of cotton, which seems to be a good combination. I'm making a couple more potholders with the same batting combo. (Pictures to follow).


  1. I'm so glad they have you to teach and inspire them!

  2. and i'll bet you're happy to have 3 weeks of tutoring in a subject you love. No exams to mark!!
