The (in)famous Mrs. Pugsley (aka Beth Munroe) dropped into the Saturday class and has shared some photos she took of the works in progress. For the whole cloth sampler project, the students marked one motif on the fabric and then free handed the rest. Look at that tiny micro-stippling between the points.
I had stitched several samples, each using different filler stitches and batting types so we could compare the look. This one uses two layers of my favourite wool batting.
I brought my Farrago which was a semi-finalist at Paducah this year, not to show off but so that that I could share the judge's remarks while we examined the quilting. It sparked a good discussion and I felt so pleased to be able to bring the opinion of a world-class show to our class. It encourages me to enter more shows to share the critique of the experts.
Here's Debbie from Oxford showing off her new skills.
These hands belong to Heather from Keswick Ridge, N.B.. Heather found she preferred using squares of gripper fabric on top of the quilt rather than wearing gloves.
Thanks for all the pictures, Beth. Will we also see some of the piece you are working on?
