CACA - class - Dee

Dee has taken to crazy quilting like duck to water...............


Her colours are vibrant..........................


Dee has grasped the concept of layering stitch on stich very successfully ..............


I love her choice of threads, beads and ribbons...............



The hours she has spent beading...................


I am looking forward to seeing what she has done at the next lesson.............


This chevron seam treatment is quite something..................


Interesting use of long bugle beads..............
It is clear to me that Dee is enjoying her crazy quilt journey.

See you all next week.

Double Tuesday class - crazy patchwork at the Patchwork Angel

The last Tuesday of the month means a full day teaching - always a fun and noisy affair.
Bettye has a passion for miniatures - this is a tiny sewing room she created - the size of a matchbox!!

Why I love crazy quilting.........................

There are so many things about CQ that I love - but one of the aspects I get the most pleasure from is teaching. I teach approximately 45 students each month and every piece of work is unique - no piece of CQ can be duplicated.

Whenever I am invited to give a talk on CQ I ask a few of my students if I may show off some of their work - it is this part of my talk I love the most.

Gwen has been coming to my classes for about 5 years - you can see from her work that she obviously does not need me any more. But along the years we have become friends - which is also such a bonus.

So please enjoy her magnificent work. It will take a few posts to get all her work shown.
Enjoy!!
