Making Choices in Indy

I hardly ever have time during a workshop to take photos. I just get so involved with the projects, I forget or just get too busy. But I had to pull out my phone and snap a shot of this cool, portable design wall. This belongs to the Quilters Guild of Indianapolis. Thanks to Amazon and fast shipping, I now own one too. I bought the gray option.

The Indy quilters had a choice of Appliqué or Piecing Quilting in Layers workshops on alternate days.

How about this fabric! Lots of choices are always good.

We always begin in the same way, with the blocks.

Some choose to try all the techniques and then decide which will work best to create the design for their quilt.

Other quilters have a clear idea from the start. Isn’t this a soft and modern color way. Choosing center squares will be fun and make the gray color and texture sing.

Laura, the wonderful Program Chair for the Guild, took the Appliqué class the day before so she decided to continue work on her tulip. The batiques she chose for the background are beautiful just by themselves.

Orangy red tulips grow in her garden at home. I hope this quilt will be a reminder for her in the snowy winter months.

I had a wonderful trip to Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. Thank you to all the quilters and new friends who made it possible. I hope our paths will cross again.

    You have gotten so much variety in your samples. I like the fact they are a consistent size. All that cariety is being reflected in your students’ work. Keep on going.

  2. What fun to see this post today – just this morning, I finished my blocks and got the top together. I will send you a picture when I finish mine (the orange, purple, and turquoise batiks). Thanks so much for a great class!
