Jane’s getting started in the photo to the left, coiling the bottom of her batik fabric bowl in yesterday’s workshop in my @Home Classroom.
I wish I had gotten the camera out while we were using our PowerWrappers. There was clothesline all over the floor, strips of fabric on every surface, and half a dozen immobile quilters “wearing” what looked like bows (as in bows and arrows). We were quite a sight.
Bernadeine is building the walls of her bowl in the picture over here to the right. She also PowerWrapped, but instead of going “random” or using just one fabric, she alternated two fabrics which created stunninng bold stripes.
Everyone did a fabulous job! Thank you for coming!
Shown below are Nancy’s bowl made from white “confetti” fabric, Betsy’s “Halloween batik medley,” and Karolyn’s hunter green speckled bowl.
Workshops in my @Home Classroom are over for the year, but they will resume again in 2009. Stay tuned.
Betsy Stephanic writes: “Here’s the oval bowl I made today (the day after the workshop). I squished the long sides a bit to get a curve in the top edge, and I wove in two strips of the dark fabric on the long sides to see what would happen. Not as much contrast as I expected, but at least it’s visible! I meant to add some at the ends, too, but I got carried away and forgot until it was too late. Thanks for a great class yesterday. I really enjoyed it. ~~Betsy Stephanic
