Carol Taylor is back again this year repeating her very popular Improvisational Scrap Quilt workshop.
The first two days have been a flurry of activity as the students build components, that they will later use in their quilt compositions, while learning different construction techniques – skinny lines, couching, pieced circles, and a lot more.
This is an example of the exercise piece created when they were learning to couch various types of fancy fibers on a piece of fabric. This will later be cut up into pieces when they start to compose their scrap quilts.
Everyone’s work is looking totally different even though they are using the same techniques.
Carol Taylor thought I coordinated very well with Gail Dwyer’s sets so she said that she just had to take a picture!
Carol bought her mini yarn shop with her, providing lots of eye candy and possibilities for the students to purchase. This is a benefit of Carol being close enough to us to drive in her own van.
As a knitter and a fiber artists, I just love to gaze at the jumbled pile of color and sparkle!
