Last week I had one of the best quilting classes I've ever taken. Just plain fun! I took a five day class with Sue Benner at Quilting by the Lake, now held annually at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, NY. I found Sue to be one of the best teachers I have ever had. She's very organized, but relaxed, and makes the experience a joy. The first photo is of my first project in colors that I normally work with--brights, particularly red and orange. This was done in the first two days of class.
The next photos are of project 2, which took three days. I love things that are assymetrical and my plan was to groups the colors of the flowers in sections on the piece. The first photo shows my original design which I didn't find particularly pleasing. So Sue came along and helped me group them by predominate color and the second photo is the final product. I ended up cutting all flowers into quarters. Most of the rest of the class kept most of theirs whole or cut into halves.
It was a wonderful week, with wonderful room-mates, and I hope to go back next year.
