Yesterday and today I took workshops with Debbie Bowles. She is a really neat lady and a good teacher. I don't have yesterday's project sewed together enough to show yet but I do have today's fairly far along. Here it is:
Cutting free form curves was really neat. You have to take a deep breath when you do your first one but once you do it goes pretty easily. Sewing them together is a breeze as long as you don't get your pieces flipped (which I didn't do!).
I want to get the strips sewn together so that I can take it on our field trip on Monday to Shiisa. Jan has some great contemporary fabrics that I want to audition for the border. Debbie suggested black which I am seriously considering with a scrappy binding made up of the fabrics in the body of the quilt. Any thoughts?
