Another great class I took, was with Karla Alexander. It's not the first class with her for me. She is a great teacher and has one of the most freeing and fun ways of sewing curves I have ever done. Actually you cut free hand cut the curves too. If you have followed my blog you have seen my "Bent Out of Square" quilt posted last year, and yep, she's the one who thought up that beauty. This time I took her Arboritum quilt class. We made leaves and inset them into the blocks. It all looked very difficult, but you can't believe just how easy it really is.
These are the blocks that all of us did during class. I don't think there was 1 of us, who didn't marvel at how easy they were to do. I can hardly wait to finish up more of these fun little guys! Oh yeah, this is what all those pieces were cut for that I posted last week. :-) You can see more of Karla at http://www.saginawstreetquilts.com/.
Like I didn't have enough on my plate with these, I was in a class once I got home yesterday at my LQS. Mariners Star! Those Quiltsmart patterns sure do take the "difficult" out of everything. I am well on my way to finishing up a 54" square quilt in just 1 day! Yea haw, I love those kind of projects. But with so much on my plate, I don't know what to tackle first!!! Decisions Decisions! :-)
Isn't it wonderful to be so excited about your quilting that you don't know what to do first??!! I love that feeling -- keep at it, girl!ReplyDelete
