    Very nice! I'm really torn between that class, the quilting with templates or the quilting negative spaces one. I'm sure I'll eventually do all of them but now I'm leaning towards this one instead of the templates - those were my first two choices... Your piece looks wonderful

    If it helps you decide, Cindy Needham covers quite a few really cool background designs in this class. BTW, I'm interested in the Negative Spaces class too, but now I've got a BUNCH of new stuff to work on for awhile.

    Oh, your quilting is outstanding! I too took the course and got lots of good pointers. I'm currently working on a quilt that I had pieced fairly carefully and wanted truly beautiful quilting. Painful as it was, I followed Cindy's ESS recommendation (ditch every stinking seam) before starting the FMQ part. Even though my stitching was acceptable on my practice piece, when I was doing the actual design on the quilt I had lots of trouble. Couldn't make nice smooth lines, thread breakage (SOOOO frustrating), etc. I'm taking a break and plan to pick up the next parts tomorrow.

    Maybe you want to do mine for me?

    This is beautiful to see a project done from a class. I tend to get fed up listening to chit chat on videos. Must try to accomplish this standard .

    True; I took this class to learn more about how to design for the pieces I wanted to quilt. I've been practicing freemotion quilting (FMQ) for over 3 years now, and for the first several months it was very BAAAAAAD! (Our cat and our daughter's dog have several of those first attempts to sleep on!)

    Well your practicing has paid off. I can't seem to do that but know that I must make time for it if I want to move forward. Thanks for sharing

    I am taking her class too, but you are much more advanced. I agree with you, practice and then practice some more. I love her as an instructor. She is so relaxed and seems to have a good handle on what we need to know. I like how she shows her completed work, so you know where you're going, and then she teaching you what you need to know to get there. Your work is beautiful! I would give you an A+ in the class.

    Are you sure you're not the one teaching the class? Looks like you should be. That's beautiful.
