Trust me, I've been properly chastised for my lack of posting! So I am going to try to string a few days of posting together, starting now!
Wait til you see!
First, Debbie B. from Watkins Glen with her stunning Mariner's Compass. She is going to hand quilt this beauty and already has designs in mind--that will be absolutely fabulous! Great job, Debbie! (She took this class at O'Susannah's in Watkins Glen.)
The lady behind the quilt is Gale, who drives over 1.5 hours each way to get to the classes at Patchwork Plus in Marcellus. Gale has a lot of artistic vision and there is a lot to see on this quilt. She traded out some background pieces in the compasses to make some look like they are "holes" in the sky. Just amazing!
Next, Marie, who took this class in Elmira Heights. Using a solid background really lets the stars shine. Can we say WOW? Yes, we can! (You can tell she's smiling behind the quilt--just look at those sparkling eyes!) I'm smiling too!
Many years ago I taught a class called Primitive Baltimore, which Judy D. took at Patchwork Plus in Marcellus. She was lucky enough to travel to Hawaii and bought some fabulous fabric there. She used the cutwork designs from the original quilt to make this stunner! This is the Flimsy-Not! Just beautiful!
And the almost-always smiling Penny! This is her Green Thumb flimsy which she brought to show off! Do you think she likes purple? (Just a little?)
Ladies, this is what makes a teacher's heart sing! You all did a spectacular job! Thank you so much for sharing!
Tomorrow, a peak at some class photos!
P.S. I just finished listening to Memory Man by David Baldacci, and am listening to Robert B. Parker's Kickback by Ace Atkins.
