Mountain Picnic - Adult Ed class
Kathy is doing a wonderful job of showing her machine quilting techniques to our Adult Ed. class.
All the ladies are doing a beautiful job on their quilts, and we hope to have some finished quilts to show at the end of class October 19th.. The pattern, Mountain Picnic will be available to buy soon and we will let you know when and where.. The fun part is that everyone in the class is doing something a bit different with their placement and adding their own personalities and colors.
We encourage individuality for each quilt. Everyone has a choice to try out machine stitching or hand applique on four blocks and learning piecing basics on the other 5 blocks.. We will be going over sandwiching the layers, binding, and the importance of signature blocks. More soon!
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
