Here are the results of yesterday's post lunch pop quiz:
Pamela instructed us to switch seats and tables with our classmates and in fifteen minutes we had to construct a small quilt with a bird in it. What fun!!! I'm a real bird lover and spend a lot of time watching birds, but do you think I could cut one out in any way shape or form? Lordy, was that a challenge for me!!! When the time was up, we made a small wall quilt with all of our new quiltlets.
Here is the first piece that I did yesterday. It had to be in all black and whites, with shade gradations. I was nervous as all get out, stressed by all of the Atlanta morning rush hour traffic on my way to class, and then even more on edge when I realized that Pamela and my classmates would be critiqueing each piece. After the initial few seconds, i didn't mind a bit, and then craved each critique session that we had, because everyone was so kind, complimentary, and had such great suggestions.
If you get the chance, treat yourself to as many days of classes with Pamela Allen as your calendar and pocketbook will allow!
