    Samples for a workshop

    I'm giving a talk and workshop in the near future and I wanted to have some samples of easy landscapes.
    Most of those who attend a workshop want something they can actually finish so some of the multi day pieces and techniques are out of the question. These 2 pieces, examples of the same style, Collage and Raw Applique worked up quickly and were easily completed on a second day with a few hours.
    Any comments?

    those are lovely. a local gal does lots of white birch, so that doesn't thrill me. so if i were to take the workshop, i'd definitely choose the green trees.

    Your samples are beautiful. I wish I could be in your class! The techniques look to be fun to do. I made a collage quilt for a granddaughter who lives in Ottawa and it was so much fun to do. You are very talented and it is great that you are so willing to share with others.

    I agree with purpledog, your samples are terrific and I bet you teach a fun class. Nice of you to share your talents with other quilters.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Actually it's for the Dufferin Piecemakers guild in Orangeville.
    If you're not far from Guelph you should consider joining our guild, Royal City Quilters Guild. RCQG. Always room for one more.
    PM me if you'd like more info

    Both are lovely! I’m not sure of the question you posed...if you’re asking which one is a favorite...I like both and would be influenced by the season for choice. So right now, it would be the evergreens. Is it possible to allow both choices or would that present too many problems?

    Yes!!! I am a member of the Dufferin Piecemakers guild and we are looking forward to your presentation and workshop! I am especially excited since I attended your presentation in Guelph last Christmas. I know which of the two samples I will opt for at the workshop. Your birch trees have always fascinated me. Just hope Mother Nature doesn't throw me a curve ball, since I have a fair distance to travel.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Your work is so beautiful.Love both samples, but lean towards the birch trees.

    You know, there is nothing wrong with your copying something you see. If you were working from a photo that's what you'd do. When you're trying something new or for the first time examine other's work and try to duplicate it. That's what you'd be doing at most workshops.

    Love your samples and like many others, I wish I could take your class. However, I think the commute from Houston, TX, would be a bit much!
