following the thread :: explorations in improvisational quiltmaking
On Saturday, six bright and brave young quilters joined me at Litte River Studio for a day of improvising with fabric. "Following the Thread" is a hands on workshop I've been developing to introduce some basic concepts of Improvisational Quilting, and share some techniques that I've been using to make my one of a kind quilts.
We spent the day lost in making, occasionally coming up for air long enough to have a snack, or visit a neighbor's sewing station to see what they were up to. Periodically we put our work up on the design wall, so that we could stand back and really see the emerging compositions.
All in all a delightful day, spent in good company, in the glow of making. Enjoy some of these beautiful photos by Jess Snow, and stay tuned for the next workshop, coming this Spring!
