Class Project: Water

Here is a class project update.  The fabric that I painted is the background.  I am learning to make waves and foamy water.  I have a LONG way to go.  Some of what I tried works.  Some doesnt.  I have tons of sewing left to do on it before it is ready to be quilted.

The point is, I have learned much.

And just for Jan…… here is a close up of the batik that I burned the edges of to get jagged rocks.  Some of my batik worked pretty well.  Others didnt work at all.   This whole class is an experiment!

This week:  FIRE!  (no, not because of burning batiks)

———————————-

And this is the quilt I have been trying to get done for a client:

Those sashings would be easier to do if the quilt was in a straight set, rather than offset rows.  I think I got it figured out so it is passable.  Not great, but ok.  Pretty colors huh?  Wonderful batiks and metallics in this one.

    DeeeeeeeLICIOUS fabrics in your customer quilt. Stained glass is my second passion … well, maybe 14th, but still a passion!

    You’ve been very busy! I love what you are playing with in your online class. Very cool progress! I also enjoyed going through the pictures of your recent vacation. One of these days I hope to take a tour of that part of the country.
