Baby Steps


Twelve interested quilters worked with Rayna Gillman from 10 am until 5 pm today.  Whew!  What a lot of fun.  We cut lots and lots of skinny strips, sewed strip sets, then manipulated our creations to explore various design possibilities.  It was a great exercise for someone like me who tends to be a "little" on the obsessive side.  Wow, I didn't use a pin all day!

Here are Lori M. and Paula in action.

Strips sets made to coordinate with a hand painted panel.

A composition is taking shape.

Here's Ruth hard at work.  We all had large pieces of batting taped to the wall to use as design walls.  Those are mine on the far left.  I think that things will really take shape when we meet for the second day of the class tomorrow.
