Apparently its been 347 days since we first went into lockdown. Thats nearly a year! Its probably a good job that we didn’t know then what we know now.
For me, peresonally, this time has given me space to finish some outstanding projects and take some online classes with people I have admired but wouldn’t normally be able to take a class with.
Firstly I was able to join Nicholas Ball @quiltsfromtheattic for his Improv triangles class. I chose a limited palette of blue and green, I think these look like sailing boats so called the piece ‘Regatta’. I will quilt it with straight lines.
Secondly, I did a Masterclass with Jo Avery @joaverystitch and learnt improv curves, making up a quarter block of her Dandelion Clock pattern.
Back in November I was able to join Vendulka @Oliven for a class on her faux chenille. This is a technique I’ve wanted to try for a while and I was very pleased with the result.
And finally I joined a design class hosted by Carolina Oneto which was hosted in Brazil and joined by ladies from India, USA and the UK. A truly international opportunity. These are two pieces I made as a result of the class.
I look forward to when we can all meet up for face to face classes but will miss having these opportunities
