Yes, I definitely learn from my students! I recently visited the Ridge Quilters’ Guild in Paradise, California. We had a great time working in my “Daisy Table Topper” workshop. Of course, I did not get as many photos as I would have liked. I loved the way everyone’s project was coming along:
I love this-Gail decided to go her own way and was experimenting with feathers! Like me, she loves feathers and wants to feather her world. I like the way this is coming along and I think I will have to play with this concept also.
Sally was a first-time bubbler (that is a new noun, giggle)-look at those bubbles! I like the way this turning out with the batik.
Ann was going for an elegant look and used a pretty Fairy Frost fabric with a poly thread. The fairy frost was a little bit challenging for her tension, but she made it work.
The success of this type of work comes from leaving a lot of negative space. Kim did a great job with her placement and use of negative space. Isn’t this pretty?
I forgot to get a photo of Lianne’s work, but she decided to change it up a bit and cut out the middle of the flower petals and I love what that does for the cutwork! Here you can see that Gail used that idea and some of her daisy petals are cut out, which adds a lot to the piece. I think they have more impact than the solid daisies.
Well I had to try that on my own sample. So this is the “old” way that I have been doing it. It’s quite nice.
Oooo-I like it much better with the centers of the petals removed-I think it gives it much more definition. Now I just need some time to incorporate these new ideas into my own work. Thank you Ridge Quilters’ Guild!
