The Great Lakes African American Quilt Network celebrated it’s 10th anniversary this past weekend. I was privileged to be a workshop teacher, showing some wonderful ladies how to make quilts without patterns. I had a great time with a really nice group of women.
I remembered to take some pictures–hooray! The best part of a workshop for me is when the pieces and parts go up on the design walls. Everyone works from the same set of instructions and makes the same basic pieces. Do any of these pictures look like the same quilt? I truly love seeing how different everyone’s work is.
I don’t try to match names with the pictures. I admit right up front that I make errors when I try to do that and I’d rather just share the work with you than offend someone with the wrong name on the wrong piece!
This picture is of the samples I brought to show that no two quilts will look the same, even with the same instructions.
These pictures are what the ladies came up with…exciting!
