Check out the photos of Karen's "Reptile Wisdom" quilt that she made for the Tutors' exhibition at Symposium at the end of this post.
On Saturday 31st January I did her class "Wild women don't get the blues". Here I am all packed ready to go
First up Karen had a big suitcase of her quilts which she generously showed and discussed with us - a feast of inspiration...here's a taste :
She is wonderful with colour, as well as being technically amazing at what she does. This is one of her latest quilt tops which makes my heart expand - the colour and pattern make me feel so happy :-)
After the show & tell we moved into selection of fabrics and the actual quilt making. This is a photo of the fabrics I took to class - I "shopped" my stash - I know I need more of that lovely blue in the background of my feature fabric, but just went with what I had
Here it is rearranged by Karen during a discussion about colour choices, and she only removed a few fabrics (about 6)
She confirmed I "need" to shop for some blue fabric of the background colour to round out the palette, but good to go on the day....This was a foundation piecing class, so slow going. I did well to finish 8 borders to go on 2 blocks of feature fabric - here they are sat on the fabric to give you a look at what my quilt will be like
