My online class is now over, and it was a wonderful success!! Thanks to all my students, I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and seeing your work!
One part of the class that I enjoy doing is where the students submit pictures of quilt tops and I design them, also known as “quilt whispering.” Here are 2 random examples from class, the first is a quilt by Diane:
And this next quilt belongs to Joann H.:
The students can then take my suggestions or change them up, whatever they wish. In the past, I have had several students who quilted my designs and won awards at major shows. This has been rewarding to see students succeed.
I am back quilting on my machine now. Which reminds me that I didn’t share the quilt I quilted before my online class began. This was a cute embroidered quilt for Jayne:
Jayne’s quilt had some lovely embroidery. Here is a close-up of a block so you can see how I quilted it close-up:
My freehand quilting really makes the blocks stand out and draws the eye, doesn’t it?
I haven’t been quilting as much as usual- not only due to teaching the online class, but because I re-injured my right elbow a few months ago. I have been going to physical therapy and the elbow and arm is doing much better! It feels good to quilt again.
How have you been? Carla
