I had a great time, attending another class with Suzi Parron! Earlier this month I took a class with Ocean Waves Quilt Guild () and I could not pass the opportunity by to take another. Suzi was teaching this time for Delmarvalous Quilt Guild and they had space left in the class. It was fun to go with 3 other members of my quilt “bee” – the Material Girls!
My hubby is a car guy, and wanted me to do a Chrysler Pedistar symbol, but I did not have a chance to draw it out ahead of time in quadrants that I could then “paint”.My brain just would not “work” and get this from paper to the 24″ square piece of wood. I tried….really….thank goodness Suzi had a BIG eraser!!
So, I settled for a quilt design I could draw out. Since I am currently working on a Quilts of Valor “Bonnie Hunter Quilt – Ohio Star and Rails pattern”, I decided that would be my block. I was going to actually do the “barn quilt” in the same color as my quilt. ()
But, when I got up to the table to pick out my paints, I saw she had a couple of containers of an interesting teal……and so this is the result:
Still need a little “trim work”; but paint was so wet and it was so humid, I thought it best to leave it rest a day in the garage to dry and then I will go back to work on it. Hubby thinks a little “pin striping tape” would really set the blocks….and then I would not have to do much more taping and painting. (The red needs another coat or 2.
My friend Audrey did this one:
My friend Francie is working on this one:
It was a long day, lots of standing etc while you tape your areas etc; and there was an issue with the power in the room that kept us from using two or more hair dryer’s. So, getting completely finished was a challenge for some. It was overall another good class by Suzi Parron. Do go back and check out the links in the post () about Suzi and her book.
So, no sewing; just paint and pencils and rulers and tape! Fun and not one seam ripped!
