At the beginning of this pandemic, I decided to take a couple of online classes. Not only did I want to learn new things, I also wanted to support teachers like me who have had their classes come to a screeching halt.
Since I test patterns for Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis and she was offering a variety of online events/classes, etc., I decided to dive in and have fun. I watched a couple of her free Facebook Live and then signed up for her Scrap Bracelet class. I posted about that a couple of weeks ago.
After that class, I signed up for the Peaks and Valleys class. I'd seen the pattern before and thought it looked fun. I pulled all of the fabric from my stash and was happy to be able to have enough that looked Halloween, but didn't "scream" it. I decided that I wanted the quilt to be a little wider than called for, so I added an extra column to the left side.
For the quilting, I wanted it to be simple, so I quilted lines echoing the piecing. The lines are sewn at random intervals, which made it so easy for me.
Here's a shot of the back.
It was kind of windy, so getting some good pictures was kind of challenging.
While participating in these Facebook Live events and taking classes, I learned more than just quilting. I've paid close attention to the actual production of the classes and have ventured into the world of video tutorials. I've started small and I'm not very professional at all, but I'm having fun. I'm hosting a FREE Spring Table Runner Sew Along for Chestnut Ridge. Here's a sketch of the runner that we are making. This is the short version, but I'm offering it in a longer size too. HERE'S a couple pictures of the long runners.
