Studio Six crit day

Today was more-or-less a show & tell rather than a crit. It rained, so Randy came - wow! second time in a row! (she is a landscape gardener and we don't see her till winter, normally). She is almost finished with her spectacular Dear Jane quilt - atypical and a real departure for her, but working on it for the past year kept her sane during a very trying time. I made her lay it down for a minute on the couch so I could shoot it, so this is only a portion and it's lopsided - but it is gorgeous.
Lisa brought her piece from a couple of weeks ago; we had talked about how she could quilt it. Here is a detail and then, the whole piece.
Rachel brought some fabrics she had worked on earlier this week, but my pictures were blurry - so next time. Tomorrow, Rachel and I are going to join Judy Langille's 8 week class at the Newark Museum. Signing up for a class seems to be the only way I can get play time these days.

Tonight, I am still stitching facings - it would be better if I were a tv watcher. But I'll put on my classical music and I'll be fine.

I am so jealous about the class with Judy! Loved these pictures. Thanks

Oh, joy. I am learning to think ahead...a totally new phenomenon.
Can't say how much of it will take permanently -- I never want to lose the sponenaeity -- but it is an interesting concept.

Me, too. I would love a class with her!! Instead, I am taking a 3 day class with Wendy Huhn at the Contemporary Craft Museum here in Portland - not too shabby -eh? The title is Transferology.

Thanks for sharing the Dear Jane picture. I've been working on my blocks slowly but surely, although my colors are much more plain than that one.
