Well I really have to get better at WordPress – but it takes so much time to make a page – I know, if I were better, gosh, I could do a class – I would be faster at page making. So I haven’t cracked how to text wrap around photos – or for that matter how to make a gallery, yet, because that would be really useful when it comes to my classes: just open a gallery and put their work in- how super would that be?
So today I have re-written the Intermediate class description – yet again and this time I managed to get photos of all nine blocks they make in the class downloaded – but text wrap – no; gallery – no; same size – no – but at least they are there and look almost decent – don’t you think? So check out the description of the Intermediate quilt under my workshops and tell me what you think! Here is the best photo of four of the blocks:
These are the Bouquet block, Lone star block, my applique block(unfinished as yet) and the New York Beauty block. I love my fabrics – Australian (and by the way, it is an Australian turtle as well); They are all 12 1/2″ blocks and we will be assembling the quilt after the October class. I think I will keep to the same techniques/blocks – strip piecing; foundation piecing; inset seams; applique; stars and circles, etc. unless at the end, the present students recommend otherwise! Each one of the class, is using such fun fabrics and taking advantage of them as well.
Busy week – madly trying to finish my Becolourful quilt by Jacqueline De Jonge, and it is coming along but not fast enough.
I have also been getting ready for two classes – Beyond Beginners and particularly the Beginner class that started on Tuesday – they have so much to learn in that first session, it is amazing they can stay the 3 hour pace. In Storrington Quilters we are making a Winter quilt with penguin appliques – and real penguin appligues, not childish ones – there are 17 different kinds of penguins, and we hope to include them all.
I am off to Cyprus for a week for sun, swimming, reading and relaxation. I will need it since the week I get back is just as busy.
