The workshop was geared towards learning to design and focused on wholecloth quilting where the students had the freedom to create their own designs. Of course I had my brand new Ultimate Backgrounds with me for playtime in the sandbox. I was not only blown away by the beautiful work the students created but I was really watching to see how they would use the background stencils.
The above quilt was created by Ann Moore who has taken three workshops from me now. She worked ALL week on this one piece and I was fascinated with the "modern approach" she took for using a multitude of the backgrounds. The above picture shows how the triangle stencil was used...
Fabulous, fabulous time in Texas...thank you to everyone who took such amazing care of me and all my students who put up with me!!!
I also wanted to give a shout out that for those that took advantage of the "pre-sale" on the Ultimate Backgrounds, your orders are all assembled, packed and have been shipped in three separate trips to the post office. You will be receiving them VERY soon!!!
I LOVE getting show and tell in my emails so if you have done something wonderful with either the new Ultimate Backgrounds or the Ultimate Stencils, please send a photo my way so I can add it to either a future blog post or to my Pinterest page that has been dedicated to these stencils.
Hugs, Cindy :)
