Gwen did lots of technique demos for this class, beginning with those wonderful equilateral triangles (like in the quilt right behind her). It can be confusing at first, but once you get the hang of them, those triangles are addictive!
It was great to meet Marathon Quilter- Cher. I was glad she introduced herself early on the first day. Isn't her K is 4 Kindness quilt great! It's wonderful to see a quilt in person that you've only seen online or in a book. Below are some photos of some of the fantastic works in progress from the class.
I cheated a bit. I was able to finish this quilt below on the first day because I came with the center part done (up to the rust colored border) from last year's class with Gwen. I managed to finish the outer border on the first day. It's pinned to a board with Gwen's quilt underneath. I didn't realize until now that the center of mine looks like it could have come from hers! How funny since I don't think she even brought that quilt with her last year.
Auditioning border fabrics above. Finished below.
Favorites on this piece are the inserted strips, tapered strips, spikes (love 'em!) Notice that floating point. I just adore that. Love the various purples and rusts. Do you see anything interesting in any of the quilts I pictured in this post? Let me know in the comments. There's always so many details with these quilts that I'm sure I don't notice them all.
