"I Spy" quilt, and Oveload of On-Line Classes
Below is another Spider Web type quilt. I've wanted to improve my repertoire of machine quilting ideas, so I signed up for an on-line Craftsy class by Christine Camelli. I liked her style, and had never done the on-line thing and was very pleased with the entire procedure. As soon as I clicked on the class, it was available, any time, they say "forever". The class was well organized, easy to navigate. Of course, then I was inundated by ads from Craftsy, and the BOGO for MORE MQ'ing classes was awfully tempting, so .... yes, I clicked on that option! So, now I had machine quilting ideas from Ms. Camelli, and added MQ from Angela Walter class, and another MQ by Lori Kennedy, each different in their own way. Wow, what fun! ... so in my MQ'ing frenzy, I used numerous motifs in this one Spiderweb quilt. While the MQ is NOT cohesive, it IS helpful to review what works and what doesn't - like a sampler. I was trying to learn to blend a variety of designs, flowing, curvaceous as the motifs changed. Some was successful, others not so much, but I LIKE the end product.
