JC Campbell Folk School 2011 (Set Two)

Show and Tell for my Scrap Soup class this fall. What an array of colors and a variety of fabrics. Wow, did they stitch away. Twelve great students. Next year I teach in October using my new equilateral grid paper to create mountains. Check it out at


Such a unique selection of classes for the week. Imagine the great book made from a triscuit box.


Another class using leftovers makes an amazing sign.


The new Blacksmith studio is awesome. We enjoyed a special demo here.


The railings and banisters are a sampler of opportunities. The selection is never ending.


More from up above. This new studio is state of the art and so inviting.


JC Campbell Folk School 2011 (Set One)

I Sing Behind The Plow & My Bernina


The setting: My JC Campbell Folk School fall class, Brasstown, NC  The project: Scrap Soup 


Nancy loved her special fabric but could not cut it apart. It took a lot of arm twisting to convince her that it would make a great border.


Nancy's quilt in progress. Note the diagonal scrap soup collection of colors. More of the print will frame the quilt


Waynette's array of orange, aqua and lavender just stole the show. The class room is the greatest with our own design wall, separate tables and pull down machine outlets. Ready, set, sew! 


Becky's quilt featured the light diamonds with a scrappy background. It really works.


Nancy really mixed it up with these offbeat colors and prints.


Vivki's quilt top is truly scraps with a dark background and white accent built in border


A touch of americana and so precise.  More to come.
