This weekend was filled with TONS of paper piecing! Some of my own and much of my students. On Saturday, I taught a class for the guild that I am a member. The class that I taught was the Seasonal Table Runner from Judy Niemeyer. You can find it here in my shop.
One of the things that always amazes me is the variations in color and the overall look of a piece from each of my students. I wanted to share with you some that I took photos of during the class.
There were many made from batiks. This one a more pastel variation and she varied the spikes as well.
Although this was batik, she chose to keep the spikes the same as well as the background.
The same theme here with the same spikes and background, but different coloring.
This is a fabulous Christmas version. She will definitely have a "Seasonal" Table Runner.
Beautiful fall like batiks with varied spikes.
Here she chose the same background for both the geese and the spikes, but the geese are from a different batik than the spikes.
Another fall look with varied spikes and geese, but with a twist a darker background along the edge of the geese.
This version was done totally from her scrap bin! The combos are great too!
The same concept here, but a totally different look with some sunny batik and also regular quilting cottons.
Yet another with the same concept, but with traditional quilting cottons. Funny they are the same concept for the layout, but all look totally different.
This one will be lovely when combined with the geese. It is going to be a red, white, and blue version. The geese will be red. You can see more photos from this class here in Flickr.
I was so inspired from my class I came home and continued to work on my geese for my Glacier Star, blogged here.
I was able to get a little farther than this photo shows and can't wait to finish them up!! Once they are done, I will be joining them to the Glacier Star to make them queen size.
A fabulous day all around! Don't you just love seeing all the variations? I know I do!
Until Next Time...
