Carol selected batiks to work with. She did a fabulous job. Her work is very precise. I kept waiting for her to mess up in the usual new student manner so I could show the others what not to do. She would not cooperate with my evil plan and methodically listened and performed! I hate that when that happens! lol Great colors and nice workmanship, Carol!!
Carrie took this class as a birthday present to herself. She used these great polka dots that were part of a bundle. She still has some great colors left to play with. She originally planned to have the blue where the green is now. Before the blocks were sewn together, we played a little with placement and decided the blue belonged on the outside! What a brave girl - not afraid to make changes from what she first planned! She has big plans for some great projects. I can't wait to see them! You go, Carrie and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Teaching this class is so much fun! Some folks come in and have never used a sewing machine or a rotary cutter. And achieving the perfect 1/4" seam is not as easy as it sounds. This is hard work - fun, fun, fun, but hard work! Congratulations, ladies, you did good!!!
