Teaching - Tallahassee, Florida

I had a wonderful time in sunny Florida last week teaching a two day embellishment class. The students worked on either a block from my Magnolia book or the Altered Textured 'Flower Pot' block.

We layered and embellished each block adding fabric, hand dyed velvet and wool. Each started with the same background fabrics then added their own touch.

 I love the way our new 'Dazzle' thread was used in this block.

 Seagrass used to define the border around this appliqué piece.

 We played with many ribbons as stems attaching them with an assortment of stitches.

One of the students brought her scraps for the other students to work from so they had an abundance of colors to layer with.

As always I love to see my quilt patterns in cloth. Diane had done a couple of my earlier BOM's which she brought to share.

Many thanks to all the Guild members for making me feel very welcome. And a special thanks to Maureen for her great hospitality.
Keep Stitching
