Speed 4 - Priory quilters

Yay, people came. Not as many as we had expected but still, students. I hope you will be impressed with what was achieved too. We had a bit of a slow start, what with getting into the hall and sorting out everyones equipment, however oce they got going they really got to work. Even the ones who were worried at the start have gone home with most or all of a quilt. I love these quilts, they are fun and very useful. When you don't have to invest time or stress you don't have to worry so much about the finished item. I hope these quilts will give years of great service.

You will notice a few small quilts. These are scaled down versions of the original, as worked out by the students themselves. Interestingly they take almost as long as the full size ones. I suppose that is because they have the same number of pieces, so although the sewing time per seam is reduced the thinking and pressing time isn't much. They do make very cute bably quilts and at least are enough to understand the technique. On the way home I realised the could be made as seasonal wall hangings. Two seasons per quilt as they are reversible.

Having got home I've done some more on the new quilt but you will have to wait for tomorrow for pictures of that.
