Here are a couple of projects from quilting class:
Louise with her strippy scrappy Lone Star.
I'm encouraging her to finish it and enter it in the big guild quilt show--it's very inspiring to see what can be done with small pieces!
This is Charlotte's big project. She's been working on it for quite a while now. Up close, you can see all the little squares--there are 24 different shades of blue in this one, to get the proper shading.
It's from a photograph of her granddaughter Tori, which through a fairly complex process was transferred to a graph and coded for assembly. The white "ruffle" is actually the interfacing it's been pressed to. Without going into great detail, the squares are laid out on fusible interfacing, ironed to adhere them, then the seams are sewn down. There's a book on the technique and I'll see if I can track it down--I'm blanking on it right now!
It was amazing when I took the pictures--the photographic aspect doesn't really show up unless you get a good distance from it. In the camera, it really came through. You might need to squint a little to "see" the image!
Anne was finishing the quilting on her "Divine Felines." This will go in her new home.
We don't know what her two dogs will think of it--but then, I don't think they are very critical of fabric cats.
And Gail's table runner. She was just getting ready to sew on the binding--so please imagine this with a narrow edge of dark green.
Well, that was some of what was going on tonight. We had a good class and a nice group of people. I'm crossing my fingers and toes that we can keep it up!!
I even got to knit a little tiny bit tonight, in between helping out with various projects. Yay for Tuesday quilting!!
