Thread: Results of my weaving class with Judy Irish

    I took a class last weekend with Judy Irish at a LQS. It was on fabric weaving. We had a blast. MUCH easier than I thought it would be. I still have to add some leaves I think and quilt it, but over all I'm happy with it. Colors are much brighter in person.

    If I was to change the leaves around or add some, where do you think I should make changes?

    thanks for looking. Feels so good to finally post something that is (almost) finished!

    One more try to get the picture embedded. I still have to trim the stem ends at the bottom and stitch the dragonfly on. The dragonfly has wire in his wings so the wings will look like they are flying.

    Wow, that's incredibly graphic. I love the 3D sunflowers.

    I've always heard of her in terms of machine quilting (I've seen her FMQ and it's amazing). I didn't know she taught quilt classes as well.

    She does ! She also taught a Lone Star Quilt class while in the area, as well as another one - maybe FMQ? not sure. I don't think it is the traditional Lone Star, but her's was beautiful. I couldn't take that class :( Only so many projects that be financed at once!

    She gave a lecture at the local Guild show while she was here "Process Not Perfection" Basically, she does her best but doesn't sweat the small stuff. She said if you look closely at her quilts, the points don't always match. She doesn't do mitered corners b/c she hates them. That kind of stuff... It was good to listen to her. Her FMQ is incredible. Absolutely incredible...

    I love the background, it is very unusual. Great job on the quilt, I would love to have it hanging at my place.

    Your quilt is very well done. How in the world did you get that gradient of color in the purple? Is the black and white curvy checkerboard the weaving?
