Fiesta! Quilt Class Part 1

Last Thursday (I know I'm late on this post) after work, KK, Lynn, and I got together at one of our LQS to take the Fiesta! class.  It meets every other Thursday night for 3 sessions.  In this class we made block 3 which combines paper piecing and curves, which I've done before. 

This was my first block.  If you remember my previous post where I showed the fabrics I'm using, I picked brown, teal, and rust batiks. 

This one is Lynn's block. 

And these are the pieces of KK's block.  She didn't have the chance to put it all together during the class, but you get the idea. 

I love that we're all using batiks.  I've been trying to use them more regularly in my quilting.  I've tended to stick to printed cottons, but I really want to branch out.  I love batiks and I don't know why I don't use them more. 

I hope to have all 8 blocks of this particular block done by our next class on the 18th.  My first priority is to get the binding attached to my cousin's quilt for their bridal shower on the 21st.  Must finish!!!!!
