My classmates at Quilting by the Lake worked hard and did some amazing work. I somehow missed final images for most of them, but these few will give you an idea.
Rosalie Dace, our teacher, circulated around the room almost non-stop. She gave one-on-one advice to each student.
Barb worked late each night and almost completely assembled her piece by the end of the week. (Here it is still in-progess.) It was inspired by a stone wall, but she took a lot of liberties with her color choices. I loved it.
Peg started with rectangles and turned them into house shapes.
This is Lisa’s piece very early on. Hers is the one inspired by her engagement ring. She quickly mastered curved piecing and it’s a good thing. As you can see, she has quite a few yet to do.
I wish I had a photo of Lisa’s work further along. She used some wonderful hand dyed fabric and many bright colors. It was really singing at the end of the week.
Olan was the only man in our class (or at QBL for that matter,) but it didn’t seem to phase him in the least. He pieced these intricate feathers as part of a very large stylized piece.
Emily went for a minimalist look and for good reason. When she began to play with these fabrics, they interacted so well she didn’t want to break up the composition. She hand appliqued them in place and her top is finished!
My neighbor in class was Annemarie and she brought these vibrant colors. I knew I’d like her piece when I saw them.
Sure enough, here it is. I love the composition and contrast! It was my favorite. This is it at the very end of the week. She just had a few more seams to stitch.
One of the great things about taking a class is learning from your classmates. I definitely did that!
P.S. If any of my classmates read this, I’d love to receive photos of your finished pieces. With your permission, I’ll add them to this post.
