Hello Everyone,

Yesterday marked the first session of a Judy Niemeyer Paper Piecing Class that I am teaching here in CT.  The pattern we are making is Total Eclipse and can be found here.  We had a good time and I wanted to share with you!

Everyone came prepared with some of the pre-class prep work...

Barbara S. came prepared with a color layout of how she envisions her final quilt to look.  We will compare when the "real" quilt is done.

Rita has some pretty batiks... love the chartreuse background!

Elisa (a blogging friend) is preparing her pieces. Most likely you can read more about the class on her blog by clicking here.

Sharon is lining up her pieces in the color order that she envisions.  Nice and bright!

Kathy is doing a wonderful fall like version.  Love the spike colors!

Maria completed 4 of Unit H.  You can see that she created a "star" in the center.

Love Joan's cool blues.

Elisa's is coming along... she is using a combo of Kaffe Fassett and Australian Aboriginals.

Sharon's is progressing... lots of her batiks can be found here.

Kathy's fall version is turning out well!

Barbara (another blogging friend) is also using bright batiks!

Sally (who is also another blogging friend) was there, but somehow I didn't get any photos of her block in progress.  So I swiped this from her blog post (hope that is okay, Sally). They were completed when she returned home.  She has some wonderful bright batiks!

All in all a very productive day, a bit of homework for everyone. I can't wait to see what they come back with next week.  Soon they will look like this...
