A Day with Pamela

I made it to the Pamela Allen class at EBHQ.

This is all the stuff I took to class, except my sewing machine is not in the picture. (above). The pieces you see are pieces that I made in a previous class with her at Quilting Adventures.

This is what it looks like when I work in a class. (above) What a mess!

My background for the House & Garden quilt. I really can’t help starting new projects in her class.

First draft

Pamela working on my piece

Lots of flowers and flying dots.

Not so many flowers and flying dots.

Not so many flowers and no flying dots.

Final composition. I like it, but I have to admit that I had a very hard time working with the darker colors (the black around the flowers and the blue/black checkerboard. All I could think of was that I wasn’t used to it. I haven’t been using much black lately and, as you know, have been trying to make cheerful quilts. This quilt-let seems a little dark to me.

Pamela working with Julie

Julie’s piece. I love the line up the left hand side.

Group Sampler project. We had 15 minutes to make our part of this piece.

Julie’s two fish. Can you find the second one?

My fish – with dots, of course!

I am tired and about to sign off, but I thought I would put up some photos for all of you to drool over while I go recover from a FAB day. More tomorrow.
