Student's work

I was teaching on Thursday evening and one of my students has finished this quilt.
She pieced the whole thing by hand and then had it machine quilted on a longarm machine. People always seem to think that hand piecing is so slow but if the only time you have to sew is in your lunch hour or do not have the space for a machine at home, then had piecing can really be done quite quickly.
The quilting is lovely, in a varigated blue, white and red thread with stars on it.

I love the way she has included an apple fabric in the top as he son (for whom this is intended) loves apples.
Congratulations Jane - brilliant work.
