I was really impressed with the gals in my recent “Floral Improv” class, in Hilton Head Island, SC. They caught on quickly and were not intimidated by new concepts. AND, best of all, they made some GREAT quilts!
Why oh why do I always forget to take in-progress photos? I guess it’s because I’m staying too busy. But, I did get a few shots of finished (and nearly finished) quilts as we were cleaning up.
Peg’s quilt is completely finished except for being faced. Don’t you love the contrast?
Donna still has some stitching to do. That will really bring her poppies to life.
Although I like to use low contrast leaves and stems for this project, Rosalyn preferred the high contrast of these green stems. They really add a lot of interest.
Judy also finished the stitching on her piece and it’s all ready for facing. I’m just now noticing the dark centers she added to some of her “daisies.” I love the way everyone interprets these floral landscapes in their own unique ways. Improv indeed!
Maxine sent me a photo of her finished quilt about two days after the class. Can you see the bird she added in the lower left corner? It’s made from what used to be two flowers. (What was that I was saying about improv?)
I think these ladies had a great time and I did, too. And we all loved each other’s results!
