Creations in the making-

My students today had a lot of work to do when they came to class, and they had to be very creative. They each made similar elements to learn a couple of different techniques and then they had to put the elements together into a small wall hanging. They worked so hard I felt like a harsh taskmaster, but they sure seemed to be enjoying the process.

Here are some of their projects in various stages of the designing process.

And of course I learned from them, too, since every design idea they have is one more inspiration for me. Students combinations and curves and placement and spacing ideas always open my mind to new possibilities and I thank them all!!!

Last class–

The name of this class is Curve Queen and we learn everything we can pack in about curved piecing. We start with very traditional, move on to precise and exact and finish with free form. Fun and free form seem to go together and we really enjoyed ourselves. I did not get a picture of everything nor everyone, but I think you can get a good idea of how we played with this little slideshow.
