Her lecture Thursday evening was very inspiring. I liked how she would say "See this design . . remember it" and it would appear in another quilt later with a modification. She mentioned know your weaknesses and find a way to work around them. (Me with applique!) Even though most of the quilts were shown on power point, she left you wanting more.
I enjoyed the class. She had techniques and suggestions, but encouraged you to find what works best for you. I made my first block using freezer paper and starch. Finished it when I got home. Today I made a second block using techniques from Philippa Naylor's class. I think this is going to be the one I keep.
|This is my first block. I still have to attach a center section in both blocks.|
Although I was happy with this block, look below to see my second attempt.
|Second attempt. Using fusible interfacing allowed me to be more|
accurate. I like how the inner circle better fills the space. I need to
work on getting the "spider" more even. Overall, I'm happy.
