My students are always so wonderful! It doesn’t matter if they come in to class apprehensive or skeptical or eager. They all become part of our contributions of design information to each other. We all learn so much from seeing the variety of fabrics and different styles and approaches we take to our design walls. It’s amazing to me, even after all these years, at how unique and different each person’s work is, when we all are starting from the same set of class instructions. This post will be photos of just a few of those projects. (My second class was experimental, no set project, so I don’t have pics from that one.)
I have, upon occasion, taught classes for kids, but I did not expect to see a youngster in these classes. Natalie is 11–she celebrated her birthday with us!–and she is already interested in free form quiltmaking rather than traditional. She did a spectacular job, with a real eye for color and design.
I am so terrible at names that I warned everyone that I would put pictures up but not names…I am positive I would get them wrong! In the end, I am putting projects and not people. Cowardly, but fewer errors!
I know this isn’t everything by everyone, but it shows a bit of how improv design works. Really unique end products and the best part is that you absolutely cannot make a mistake…only design alternatives! That’s my motto and I’m sticking with it!
