Marilyn Doheny hit the ground running today and filled our heads with many ideas of what we could create using the 9-degree wedge rulers, all the way from elegant fans to fantasy flowers, butterflies, bugs, and other critters. Class participants came with several strata sewn which we could use in many ways, with none looking like any other.
She brought quilts as examples of many techniques, such as the colorful one below. Yes, it is spread out on the floor!
We made a Split Tip, and a Flip-Flop, and saw examples of the Blaze and Chevron. She showed us how to determine which of our sewn strata would work best for a Flip-Flop and which should be held back for the Blaze and the Chevron. (More about those words tomorrow!)
