Saturday I attended a follow-up workshop with Bonnie Lindsey of The Quilt Zoo who had done a presentation and trunk show at one of our past guild meetings. She had adviced to do the first project small to get a better feel for the technique as well as closer to a finish.
Some of the folks went a bit larger! Sandi brought the most fabulous hand dyed fabrics to use in her design. Yes, as you can see this becomes a bit of a 'spread out' project.
Edna and Ron were working from photos from their backyard. As you can see, we had a lovely room to work in and those big tables were fabulous to
Martha, Kathy, and Sharon working away. Kathy has her camera - we found it was good to photo layouts should some pieces walk away. My little one down there was not progressing as well as everyone elses.
This is Martha's little piece - her farm even with the little tractor on the field - it's harvest time. She was the only one who got everything done. The others got all their layouts set and half way temporarily 'fused'.
Mine - well it came home with bits and pieces laid on the board. This is the second workshop I have tried Landscaping - not a success either time. I will play with this one today and probably tomorrow.
My Juki goes off for service tomorrow - new place. I hope this time it gets the correct 'fix'. The back-up machine will take it's place while it's gone. It's not as heavy a workhorse, but it will be useful for some of the projects that are waiting. I have a lot of handwork to catch up on, too.
