Bragging Rights: JC Campbell 2012 Class

Yes, as a teacher I have bragging rights for my JC Campbell fall class this year. It was all about the 60 degree angle with quite an array of designs emerging. Using the equilateral Grid Grip as a design element they drew on the gridded freezer paper, coded the paper and then used it as a template, adding the quarter inch seam allowance,  for each of their projects. 

 A study in diamonds was a past wall hanging made for an AQS charity event became the inspiration for Nancy's work in progress below. As noted she turned her baby block set ups in another direction.
 Charnell used total restraint for her mountain scape small wall hanging, but then had the benefit of completing her project!
 With a baby quilt in mind, Barbara kept it simple and played off the dark, light and medium aspect of the design. Nothing simple about piecing those "Y" connections, however.
 Linda from Alaska was able to work out an intriguing array of batik fabrics for a small wall hanging.

Waynette decided on a full quilt top working with a 9" diamond that evolved into four patches and nine patches taking advantage of that perfect obtuse, open angle for the mountain range. Stars with personality accent the sky. Wonder if she will put a border on this? Great job!
 Patsy was very proud to complete an adaptation of a favorite camera shot from a western trip.

 Always great to have that over achiever in class as Maxine proves it completing two designs.
 Sandra came with an amazing picture from a vacation trip and struggled to interpret it in fabric. It was not easy. I shared with her my favorite quote, "A task easily done leaves little satisfaction", so in the end she was very satisfied.

I enjoyed the quilt show. I like the idea of making a baby quilt with blocks and using one with a fussy cut picture, need to think that one out.
