A few months ago, I participated in Curves Class held by Rachel from Stitched in Color. I have been incredibly eager to learn new techniques, and I figure what better way than to do it online. I have the benefit of working in a class-like setting with a teacher and other students, but I also have the benefit of doing it at my own pace and in my own space. I loved the class, and walked away with a beautiful quilt at the end (no pictures yet, it is a gift!).
When she said she was going to offer a Handstitched Class, I jumped at the opportunity to once again take a class with her.
As you can see through the link to her blog, there are a lot of weekly projects to choose from. I know with the amount of time that I have (not a lot. Most of it is taken up by being a stay-at-home mom of three, professional photographer, etc etc), I can only focus on one project a week. This time around she is offering a sampler quilt, and each week you add on to the quilt with another handstitching technique.
This is my quilt at the end of week one – a reverse applique dogwood blossom. I’m looking to next week – hand embroidery. It is the whole reason why I took this class, so I can finally make some labels for the quilts that I have made!
Enjoy your weekend!
