Class projects for Term 1

Thought I would post some pictures of the projects that we are doing in my classes at Hobbysew this term. Thanks to Fiona, my fellow stitcher and blogger at Peaceful Threads, we are making this cute little house pincushion first.

Then we are making this little evening bag. It is crazy patchwork decorated with beads and embroidery.
This colourful quilt is based on the wonderful techniques taught by Mary Ellen Hopkins. I did a course with her a few years ago and bought a few of her quilting books. The books focus on really easy techniques and quick quilts. This one is easy though the squares are small and it takes a while to cut the 600 or so you need. It is a wonderful way to use your stash of dark and medium scraps.
Then we are making this appliqued and stitched patchwork bag. 

Lastly we are stitching this little canvas work scene. It is only 2 1/2" square.
