What a fun day last weekend. Several students attended our first Quilting Art class. Students brought finished tops, learned quilt line 'design principles', made a quilt plan for their 'top', and got to quilting. The one request.... make it 2 days.... we'd all love more time to quilt, huh? MANY THANKS to my students!!!! We'll definitely offer this again. Here's a few student pics..
Patty Seabold....First, Patty planned her quilt lines with colored pencils atop tracing paper laying over her quilt top. I "think" Patty was having fun! :-)
Time to load up the machine with choice of thread. Carolyn Lombard (great name) ready to quilt her painted foul.
Okay... it sure looks like everyone was having fun. It's a big part of class... relax... have fun. The serious.. well maybe not so serious goal of the day.... To eliminate that fear of beginning the quilting. Everyone did well.
