Hello, I have been busy as usual. Lately, I’ve run to the Bay area for a meeting, been working on my current quilt, plus today I am teaching my “Quilt Whisperer” quilting design class.
In my class, I cover basics of quilting, what considerations are there for different kinds of quilts and recipients, plus have exercises and end the class with individual design instruction with student’s quilt tops. Here is an example of one class handout where the student gets practice at developing their own quilt designs:
The bowtie quilt pattern is a simple one-block quilt design. Then I introduce a more complex pattern for them to practice on.
I also have a creative exercise, I’m beta testing one from the book I wrote, but need to update when time allows to finish. LOL I am such a procrastinator!!
Here is some new photos from my current quilt project:
Speaking of quilt design, I decided to change my plan on the fly. I ended up using one of my favorite stencils, shown above, instead of my original Carla stencil design, shown here:
I had intended to combine 4 of the design above in the large blank area. But it didn’t give me enough visual impact, so I went with the lovely stencil shown in the photo above.
Time to pack quilts, etc. for class. Enjoy your day! Carla
