This month we welcomed Latifah Saafir to our guild to teach us a thing or two about curves. On June 11th we got together and learned how to make Latifah’s Molehills quilt. She taught us all we needed to know about how to cut, iron and piece curves to make molehills of our own. Many of us worked cutting and sewing single arches into lovely molehill fans and a few of us even dared to paper piece our arches. Every molehill made in class was one of a kind and so much fun to explore with each other throughout the day. Here’s a round up of our adventures that day.
Eileen showing off cutting arches using templates.
Kristine pressing her purple and pink arches.
Michelle-Nicholle stitching some curves on the machine.
Michelle-Nicholle’s arches laid out on the design wall with some full fans thrown in as well. (We love!)
Liz built a plethora of lovely yellow arches during class.
Tricialyn played around with layout of her colorful arches on the design wall.
Sarah pieced the day away using the paper piecing templates.
Rochelle finished a full fun pieced pink fan in class. (We love the fussy cut mermaids!)
Sarah shows off one whole pieced fan at the end of class.
Our design wall with a least one completed fan from every member in class. What a lovely bunch of molehills. We wanted to sew them up into a colorful quilt right then and there!
We had so much fun sewing the day away with Latifah Saafir! She had so much knowledge to offer on how to make this beautiful quilt. Lots of tips and tricks on how to be comfortable sewing curves on a machine and creating these awesome blocks. This technique might look a little daunting but we all agreed this was a great quilt to ease into learning curves. We highly recommend Latifah to other guilds and groups alike! She’s a great teacher and an all-around awesome person. We can’t thank her enough for spending a day with us at the Silicon Valley MQG.
