My Fall Tour, 2013, JC Campbell Class

My class this fall at JC Campbell Folk School  <www.FolkSchool.org> was worthy of bragging rights. With the pedal to the metal these ladies designed their own Crazy Patch blocks, pressed the coded templates out of varied fabrics and stitched away. This what I call predictable crazy patch rather than the 'ol sew and flip variety. Check out my class next April on the Folk School web site.

 Mine is called Splashes with a burst of color in each block.
 Elder made a baby quilt. She surprised herself by finishing, well except for the quilting.
 It is wonderful what that touch of yellow does for black and white. Sheryl should be very proud.
 Jane found that shades of red in the blocks and border was the perfect accent .
 Note how Janice decided to set each repeated block in the same position for each row, while the fabrics are juggled in various places. The printed border pulled it all together.
 Waynette's quilt was just glorious in color with the cornerstones repeating the inside accents. Then her border of black and white will complete this fabulous quilt.
 Betsy will win the heart of all young boys with a collection of bat man and other wild zoom, bam, fabrics.
 Then Sharon used her collection of cat fabrics in every rectangular block. So much fun to study.
 Here is my assistant, Kathy, with a proud student, Karen, showing off her gray batik block. She made much progress with blocks stacked up on the great felt, gridded design wall seen in the above pictures.
I also taught using up those necktie fabrics in purses and this special men's vest with pieced initials.
