One of the best things about our guild is the workshops we offer. Every other month, two workshops and a lecture by professionals! You can find out all about it here–Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild. Anyhow, I took Freida Anderson’s Whispering Pines class and it was like a mini-vacation for me.
No sewing, so no heavy machine to haul. Made from a kit, so no wondering whether or not I was bringing the correct fabrics. Working from a pattern, but lots of improv within the design, so that was very appealing to me.
This is what I have so far. I want to add some little details here and there. My trees are not like Freida’s. Hers are all nicely lined up, with soft, rounded edges, perfectly color gradation matched and look great. Mine are square-edged, uneven, don’t all match and look pretty good, too, if I do say so myself!
However, I was not the only one who went all “rebel” in the tree area. I only got a couple of pictures, but there were tulips and wild trees and I think a few things never seen in real life!
Of course there were those who made beautiful trees, much more like Freida’s, but we all just had such a good, relaxing day that the project was almost an afterthought.
Love having good times with fabric!
