The class is fantastic. How lucky can a girl get? Carol Soderlund one week and Jan Myers-Newbury the next.
We've really been busy dyeing yards and yards of fabric. Most of us have at least one composition on the design wall or maybe even stitched. Some have more than one.
I came to the class with no agenda other to learn whatever I could and create some unique fabric. I have definitely done both.
This is my composition. It is only pinned to the design wall. There will be some slight adjustments when I sew it together but the design will remain the same. For those of you who are familiar with my work you will notice the colors are softer than what I usually work with. I am pleased with it.
When we take our dyed fabric out of the dryer it is like getting a wonderful present.
If you are there when the dryer stops and you help sort it you really get to appreciate each and every piece.
We learned how to dye ombre fabric like this. It is just gorgeous. I haven't done this one yet.
Pauline is definitely the Queen of black and white shibori. These are just a few of the many pieces she has done. She is very prolific and each one is more wonderful that the last.
Jan showed us how to inset a square piece today. The green and brown section with 4 squares is inset into the piece. This is something worth the price of taking the class.
After Jan showed us how to inset a square one of our fellow students showed us how to inset a circle. We were all impressed. What slick trick to sew a pefectly round circle.
Tomorrow is our final day of class. We are going to hate to see it end as our minds are still full of so many ideas.
