I'm teaching a workshop on Thursday for the Trinity Valley Quilt Guild. (I think there are still spots available. Let me know ASAP if you are interested.) I offered to design a new workshop for them called "Ideas for Art Quilts." It's going to be super fun. I am very excited.
I also offered to prepare kits for students. This is a big job, but so worth it, I think. This ensures that the students have the materials that will really work for our projects and it saves them the time gathering and shopping for a supply list. I scribbled a creative message on a paint chip to decorate the kits a little.
I also put together three little samples for the class. This is exactly what the students will do -- create three little art quilt samplers. I'm calling them samplers because they will sample many different materials and techniques and put them together to create a tasty little piece of art.
This one is called "Knocking." It's 8x10ish and includes various surface design techniques, embellishments and embroidery.
I also hemmed a pair of t00-long pants today. Not a task I enjoy.
